The Mission of English Language Arts and Literacy Education: English Language Arts and Literacy in History/ Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects education in Kansas prepares students to become accomplished in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language across all content areas.
To Accomplish this Mission:
The complete English Language Arts and Literacy education program will:
- Employ high quality classroom instruction.

- Prepare students to be confident participants in educational and career settings.
We aspire for excellence as we recruit, prepare and encourage individuals to participate in our English Language Arts initiatives throughout the state.
We serve schools and communities by offering young people opportunities to actively engage in learning through authentic reading, writing, speaking and listening tasks.
Language Arts and Literacy Education should prepare students to participate as competent leaders in educational and career settings.
