Marion Community Schools teachers and administrators updated the school board on ongoing elementary literacy program efforts at a regular meeting last week.

Chief Technology and Academic Officer Scott Hoeksema said the district began its new Pre-K through fourth grade literacy plan last school year and is looking to build on the initial work this school year. He said the goal is for children to learn to read from prekindergarten through second grade, and then transition to reading to learn in second through fourth grade and beyond.
