DPS Is Raising Literacy with Text Message Program

LitWorld E-blast5The DPS Office of Literacy launched a new literacy text messaging initiative. Families in grades K-8 will receive one weekly text message on Monday evenings at 6 p.m. The text will be a resource or a tip on how to boost literacy for students in school and when at home.

Parents can opt-in to receiving the text messages and all other District phone messages by following these simple instructions:

  1. Text the word optin to 68453.
  2. Look out for a confirmation message.
  3. If at anytime you want to opt out, text STOP to quit, HELP for help.

Please note, although the district does not charge for this service, it does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by parents for sending or receiving text messages. Parents should check with their wireless carrier for possible charges.
