PRAIRIE HEIGHTS ELEMENTARY

Established in 2012, the Comprehensive Early Literacy Grant (ELG) Program is a comprehensive approach to improving early literacy, focused on implementing and sustaining scientifically and evidence-based reading instruction. The program is designed to distribute funds to local education providers, including school districts, BOCES, and district charter schools or Institute Charter Schools, to ensure the essential components of reading instruction are embedded into all elements of the primary, K-3 teaching structures in all schools, including universal and targeted and intensive instructional interventions, to assist all students in achieving reading competency.

Through the Comprehensive Early Literacy Grant Program, the Colorado Department of Education:

  • Assists grantees in establishing instructional systems based on Scientifically Based Reading Research to improve the quality of reading instruction for all K – 3 students.
  • Help schools implement a multi-tiered support system to reduce the number of students reading below grade level.
  • Provides professional development to principals, teachers and intervention teachers on effective instructional practices and the underlying teaching infrastructures to improve reading achievement among K – 3 students.
  • Assists grantees in administering and interpreting approved interim and diagnostic assessments pursuant to the READ Act.
  • Supports implementation of school-wide literacy programs as well as programs designed for targeted and intensive instructional interventions.
  • Assists grantees with testing schedules and interpreting assessment data.

PHE WAS PROUD TO LEARN THEY WERE CHOSEN AS ONE OF THE WINNERS OF THIS GRANT!

Dear Parents, Staff, and Teachers, 
 
This is not the way I hoped to make first contact with many of you. Unfortunately,  the district has experienced an unfortunate failure that has interrupted the water supply to the Admin and JSHS facilities.   
 
Because of this, I,  with input from the board, have decided to push school opening at least one week, as we assess the issue and devise a remedy.  For now, new staff will report on August 9th, all staff will be at District training on August 10th, Building training will take place on August 11th, and classes will begin on August 12th. 
 
Please feel free to contact your school or District administrator if you have any questions. As always I am available to talk at any time. We appreciate your patience during this delay. 
 
Thank you and we’re looking forward to an excellent new school year for The Hornet Nation. 
 
Best,  
Kyle Cooper 
Superintendent 
Hanover School District
