A team of Phoenix Union educators presented at the National Title I Conference, February 6 in Salt Lake. Ann Murray, English/Language Arts Content Specialist, Janice Koivisto, Teacher/Literacy Coach, Dr. Quintin Boyce, Camelback Principal and Laura Telles, Curriculum Director/Title I administrator addressed program evaluation and Title I funding to address the needs of students across the district as we strive to produce college and career ready readers. When Arizona adopted the College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS) Phoenix Union began to look at reading data more closely to create, implement, evaluate and refine programmatic and systematic structures while targeting students at their level to increase literacy skills. As a result of the presentation, Palm Springs, CA and Nevada are coming to Phoenix to learn more.
