To accomplish this, the Read Well and Language for Learning programs will be the CORE reading programs in grades K to 3 in all our elementary schools.  This will occur in phases and be rolled out over SY 2022 - 2023 and SY 2023 - 2024.     

WHAT WILL THE ROLL OUT LOOK LIKE IN UPCOMING SCHOOL YEARS?
