EPS Literacy Plan


At the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year, the New Mexico Public Education Department launched a state-wide literacy initiative, Structured Literacy New Mexico. This initiative is focused on identifying struggling readers before they fail and supporting teachers through the Science of Reading and Structured Literacy. Our intention is to increase the number of students achieving reading proficiency and reducing the number of students requiring special education services.

Structured literacy is an umbrella term used to describe evidence-based approaches for helping students learn to read and write proficiently. Structured Literacy combines a proven effective system for teaching reading with what brain science tells us is happening in the brain as we learn to read – it involves a dynamic, multi-sensory approach to learning. Research shows structured literacy approaches benefit all students and are especially effective for students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia.
Espanola Public Schools is committed to supporting students, teachers and families in ensuring high quality instruction specific to the Structured Literacy model. Please defer to our structured Literacy Plan referenced below.
