“Core5 helps teachers target specific areas in literacy in which our students need guidance. The progress-monitoring data serves as a powerful tool to communicate with not only students, but with teachers and parents as well. Core5 delivers rigorous instruction at the appropriate level for each student to help build phonological awareness, phonics, fluency and comprehension skills. In addition, the program offers teachers scripted lessons for students who struggle and reinforcement activities for students to practice newly acquired skills.”

Challenged by the wide variety of literacy levels in the school, Prieto knew students needed a proven literacy program that would allow teachers to differentiate their instruction with real-time student progress-monitoring. Her teachers required data that was reliable, actionable, and easy to interpret.
