Tolland Public Schools

 K – 12 Literacy Vision

The Tolland Public Schools are communities of learners who are well-read, critical thinkers.  In the Tolland Public School communities, the students are engaged in reading, writing, listening and speaking with independence and confidence.  Readers require authentic opportunities to practice reading with appropriately leveled texts. Texts are vehicles through which students practice and apply literacy skills of comprehension, analysis, and critique.  Writers require authentic opportunities to practice writing in a variety of genres.  Students benefit from gradual release of responsibility in which they receive modeled instruction and engage in practice opportunities.  It is incumbent upon the Tolland Public Schools to ensure each and every student learns to his/her greatest potential.
