Dear Educators,

We are thrilled to introduce our District-Wide Writing Plan and comprehensive writing resources, designed to foster a love for writing in our students. The purpose of the District-Wide Writing Plan is to improve students' writing by implementing a comprehensive, research-based approach to writing instruction across all grade levels and content areas. By providing educators with the tools and support they need to deliver high-quality writing instruction, the district hopes to promote student success and achievement, both academically and in the world beyond the classroom. 

The P-12 Writing Guidance Document contains the Fayette County Public Schools P-12 Writing Guidance Document. The information enclosed is based on state regulation (Senate Bill 1, 2022), Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) for Reading and Writing, and corresponds to the Kentucky Department of Education Writing Program Guidelines. This document provides schools with the FCPS vision and directions for implementing writing instruction that supports the delivery of the KAS for Reading and Writing for grades P-12.

Within the P-12 Writing Guidance Document, there are two infographics that consist of the Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) cycle and each part of the cycle is linked to a dashboard. These comprehensive infographic resources are designed to empower teachers of all levels with essential techniques and tips to enhance student writing skills across disciplines. It covers a wide range of writing essentials, resources, best practices, etc. By interacting with this infographic resource, teachers can quickly gain access to fundamental concepts, reinforce their understanding of writing principles, and refine their classroom instruction. Whether it's an essay, a report, a creative piece, or any form of written communication, this resource provides the tools necessary to make a lasting impact with words.

Before you leave for Winter Break today, please take a moment and subscribe to Health and Physical Education on Navigator.  There are a ton of resources, lessons, activities and more on this website!!  If you have an activity or lesson you would like to share with our Fayette County colleagues, please add it to the website. 

Also, check out the In-Person Instructional Models some schools are using when we go back hopefully in 2021.  Every school is different, but hopefully these models will help your school prepare. 

Thanks for all you do in the Health and Physical Education world.  Happy Holidays!
