The school literacy movement is a cultural improvement program, especially reading, for students organized by the Indonesian government. This study aims to describe the implementation of school literacy after the covid-19 pandemic in high schools, Indonesia. The research approach used is a case study. Data collection techniques include interviews, questionnaires, and document studies. The data sources are principals, teachers, and high school students in Sukabumi, West Java, Indonesia. The data were analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively. The research findings show that the implementation of post-covid-19 school literacy in schools in Sukabumi Public High School, West Java, Indonesia, at the stage of habituation and development has been carried out optimally. The habituation activities carried out are: reading 15 minutes before learning, providing digital libraries and school libraries, teachers being examples in literacy, habituation with readathons. The development stage activities carried out were: making book reviews, writing works such as poetry, short stories, awarding outstanding students and teachers, visiting libraries, holding celebrations on certain days with the theme of literacy, participating in one book per month program, and holding book review. While at the learning stage has not been implemented optimally. This is because not all teachers understand and associate literacy with learning. Not all teachers can integrate literacy with learning. The teacher's limitations are due to self factors that do not optimize and improve literacy skills and school factors that do not provide facilities for teachers to improve literacy skills.
