Don’t allow a winter reading slide over the holiday break. Give your child the gift of your time... sit with them and read a book! BISD has provided book boxes to businesses all around the Brazosport community. Books are provided by donations from campuses, community partners, and individuals. Simply pick up a book and read it on the spot, or take one home to read with your child. The boxes are replenished with additional books as needed.

As parents and guardians, we should never underestimate the power of reading. Making reading a part of family life can help children develop a learning pace that will build over time. By reading 20 minutes every night starting in kindergarten, a student will have read for the equivalent of 60 school days, and will most likely score in the 90th percentile on standardized tests. Additionally, reading helps our children develop a better vocabulary, which will be an integral part of college entrance exams.

In 2016, Brazosport ISD placed a laser focus on early-literacy development, which begins at the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten level. With a goal of ensuring that each and every third grader would be reading on grade level or higher by the year 2020, the READ 2020 initiative was born.

The READ 2020 action plan includes these action steps:

  • Promote the importance of reading 20 minutes a day
  • Provide training and resources to all BISD staff to ensure high quality reading acceleration, intervention and enrichment
  • Ensure every elementary classroom has implemented balanced literacy (reading, writing and speaking) with fidelity
  • Solicit and support continued community participation
  • Provide access to reading materials in the community
  • Implement family and community initiatives to promote reading throughout the Brazosport area
  • Provide resources to parents/guardians that will foster early reading readiness
  • Implement district-wide, campus-based reading initiatives
  • Celebrate student attainment of literacy skills
