5 days ago

Greetings Parents and Guardians!

Has your child been identified as having a substantial reading deficiency? Or do you just want to help support your student's literacy development at home? Please visit this link for a list and explanation of resources, many of which are electronic, that will help give you powerful, free tools and resources to help your child with the essential components of reading: Oral language, phonics, phonological awareness, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. 


Our students have access to some of the best educators and programs in Florida. The Columbia County School Board focuses on educating students in an environment of trust and respect, with student success being our ultimate goal. We continually challenge the mind, encourage creativity, and offer opportunities for school and community involvement.

We are thankful to have such dedicated teachers, students, and parents in our county.
