Secondary Text Information and Book Lists

In an effort to continue to maintain a high quality education for the students in the Raytown School District, the middle school and high school English departments are constantly working to enhance the choices and experiences for all students. The district is also committed to engaging in dialogue with the community about these choices and experiences so that we can all work together to provide the exceptional experience students deserve.

On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, the school district will host a virtual open forum, for community members to hear the rationale for the use of these texts, voice concerns, and ask questions in an effort to make sure that the community and the district are working in concert to provide an engaging and rigorous English education for the students of the district. This forum will be open from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm. Text Forum Meeting Link
