Read Well By Third Grade

Reading development is one of the most important goals of Stillwater Area Public Schools. Every staff member is committed to building and sustaining a district-wide culture in which high-quality reading instruction for all students is our most important priority.

In order to reach this goal, several structures must be in place: a sound assessment protocol, strong parental involvement, a targeted system of interventions, ongoing and evidence-based professional development, a rigorous and viable curriculum, and a comprehensive student support system for all learners. This pathway to achieving our goal aligns with MN Statute 120B.12.
