The Literacy Coach offers a variety of services to the JFK school community. Through professional development, modeling, and coaching staff, the Literacy Coach supports the content area teachers in the use of techniques that make learning accessible to all students.

Literacy Specialists work with small groups of students within content area classrooms providing support and instruction of strategies needed to comprehend content material. In addition, small groups of students meet with Literacy Specialists for focused, explicit instruction of literacy skills and strategies.

Grading Policy:

Students will either receive SP or UP on their report cards.
