Secondary Literacy Plan
The Kearsarge Regional School District (KRHS) Secondary Literacy Plan is a comprehensive program to better prepare students for the rigors of life beyond high school. It is designed to meet the urgent need to improve the literacy skills of secondary school students and to provide all students in high school with strategic literacy instruction. The plan is predicated on the belief that all students can learn when we hold high expectations for them.

Test data have shown that there is an urgent need to improve the literacy skills of high school students.
Key Components of the Secondary Literacy Plan:
