Primary Promise Literacy
Primary Promise was launched in August 2020 as part of a commitment to help all elementary school students build a foundation in literacy, math and critical thinking skills. Los Angeles Unified added more reading and math teachers to work directly with students who were struggling, with a plan tailored specifically to each student.
Reading Education for Acceleration and Differentiation
Reading Education and Acceleration for Differentiation aims to support students at 15 of our schools located in the Achievement Network in Local District South and the HEET Network in Local District West, with a focus on African American students. The goal is to improve reading outcomes for students in Grades K and 1 to support a strong foundation for reading success in the future. This goal is accomplished through a combination of direct instruction, coaching, and professional development support.
Early Literacy Support Block Grant
The ELSB Grant Program requires the California Department of Education (CDE) to award funds to local educational agencies (LEAs) with the 75 schools that have the highest percentage of students in grade three scoring at the lowest achievement standard level on the State Summative English Language Arts (ELA) assessment.
