Facts & Figures

Things are Happening at SME
Stratton Meadows and Oak Creek Elementary Schools applied for and were granted the ELG program and received the grant beginning with the 2017-2018 school year and ending in 2020. The Early Literacy Grant (ELG) distributed funds from the Colorado Department of Education to local education providers, to ensure the essential components of reading instruction are embedded into all elements of the primary, K-3 teaching structures in all schools, including universal, targeted, and intensive instructional interventions, to assist all students in achieving reading competency. We were also awarded a sustainability extension of the grant for the 20-21 school year. This extra support from CDE put us on solid footing to continue building our ELG structures and best practices.
