Archived Approved Comprehensive Core Programs

Core Instruction is instruction provided to all students in the class, and it is usually guided by a comprehensive core reading program. Part of the core instruction is usually provided to the class as a whole, and part is provided during the small group, differentiated instruction period. Although instruction is differentiated by student need during the small group period, materials and lesson procedures from the core program can frequently be used to provide reteaching, or additional teaching to students according to their needs.

The advisory list below is out of date and will remain on the website for reference only. Some programs that were previously approved are not on the updated 2020 Advisory List. Districts using READ Act Funds on instructional programs are directed to consult the Advisory List of Instructional Programs to confirm currently approved programs.
