Literacy Beliefs and Mission


  • Literacy is the foundation for student long term success beyond the classroom preparing them for academic and lifelong success.

  • Every teacher is a literacy teacher. Therefore, teaching literacy is an interdisciplinary effort, across all subject areas, empowering students through both literary and informational text.

  • We value consistency and equity for students across the district; therefore, we value ongoing professional learning for all involved in cultivating literacy development and instruction.



Morgan County Schools commits to preparing students to lead a successful literate life through high quality, research-based, best practice structured literacy instruction.
