The goal of King George County Schools' English program of study is to make literacy accessible to all students through a balanced instructional approach from preschool to high school. Students are provided rich opportunities to develop a reading life for pleasure and enrichment, as well as critical literacy necessary for college and careers. Teachers create daily instructional experiences that include reading, writing, speaking and listening using traditional and electronic media. Instruction is guided by the Virginia English Standards of Learning for Reading and Writing.
