The principles, practices, and assessment information are intended to assist leaders in ensuring they are able to support school leaders to develop school-based processes and practices for literacy teaching and learning that are research-informed and supported.

    The Roadmaps shared here align to the Virgin Islands Department of Education's State Literacy Plan.  With a focus on literacy as a shared responsibilty, these customized roadmaps offer strategies for integrating literacy in Mathematics, Science, History, the Arts, and the Health & Phyiscal Education classrooms.
