• Style Tools

    We teach our students about correct spelling, punctuation and grammar, and we work with them to make their writing more effective. And, of course, we should also teach by our own example.

Remember: Errors or poor style in communications can cause messages to be unclear, and can lead to readers losing confidence in the district's commitment to high standards. Here are some resources to help.
