ABOUT EARLY LITERACY
Early literacy is the foundation of success. Judson ISD is committed to developing reading and writing skills within the early learning classrooms that will help all young learners be successful at school and beyond.
EARLY CHILDHOOD GOALS
House Bill 3 directs districts to develop and implement an early childhood long range plan. Judson has reviewed our data, identified growth targets for both reading and math, and developed a district wide plan to help our students achieve a new level of academic success. Our plan, in conjunction with professional development in the science of reading, will benefit our students for years to come. Below are the Judson ISD board adopted early childhood goals for reading and math.
