The Essentials

The path to raising student achievement is not a direct line from funding to outcome. High levels of student achievement will result only when core instructional practices are defined and educator and system supports are in place to contribute to literacy success for every student. These include the instructional practices ( PreK , K-3 ) recommended for use in every classroom every day, school-wide and center-wide essentials in every school and center, and coaching essentials in use by every coach.
