Katy Literacy Coalition

The Katy Literacy Coalition advocates for effective and proven literacy education and intervention aligned to the Science of Reading in Katy ISD and beyond.  This includes the removal of Balanced Literacy instructional materials, such as Lucy Calkins Units of Study and Fountas & Pinnell.

The Science of Reading is a vast, interdisciplinary body of scientifically-based research. This research has been conducted over the last five decades, and it is derived from thousands of studies from developmental psychology, educational psychology, cognitive science, and cognitive neuroscience. This body of work gives us a clear picture of how students learn to read and write.

Members of the coalition include a diverse group of parents, educators, and community members committed to respectfully engaging with Katy ISD leaders.

The Katy Literacy Coalition is NOT associated with any political action committee (PAC), school board candidate, or political party.

Katy Literacy Coalition is a parent-led grassroots movement in the Katy Independent School district in Katy, Texas. Katy Literacy Coalition resources are provided for educational and informational purposes only, and should not be construed as legal advice or individualized professional counsel. An individual should not take action on behalf of themselves or their child without consulting multiple resources, taking special care to make sure that any resource reflects current educational laws, policies, and best practices.
