CCPS has carefully reviewed current division resources and has phased out those resources that focus on balanced literacy. CCPS will adopt VDOE approved instructional resources that align with evidence-based instruction for the 24-25 school year.
Phasing out Balanced Literacy:
Phasing out the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment
Phasing out the Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention resources
Phasing out the use of leveled text and guided reading instruction
Implementing Structured Literacy:
Revising the K-5 master schedule for more whole group, explicit, and systematic literacy instruction
Revising the CCPS pacing guides to reflect shifts in literacy practices
Developing teacher knowledge through Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling (LETRS) training
Implementing Heggerty Phonemic Awareness in grades K-3
Implementing Heggerty Bridge the Gap for intervention in gr. 2-5
Phasing in the LETRS phonics lesson plan format and resources
