We would like to add additional literacy materials to our program to better address the academic needs of the students we service.
We would like to add “New York State Coach ELA,” published by Triumph Learning for grades 2,3,4,5,6,7,and 8. These materials are aligned to the New York State Standards and Performance Indicators with particular emphasis on students  writing extended responses to literature.

We would also like to add “Empire State ELA,” grades 2-8 from Continental Press. These materials are closely aligned to the NYS performance indicators and literacy competencies.

In addition we would also like to add “Empire State NYESLAT” materials for grade K-8, published by Continental Press, to better service the English Language Learners student population. These materials help support curricular goals and work toward students overcoming daily language barriers. Each of the units is geared for listening, reading, speaking and writing.
To support our Voyager literacy materials on the High School level, we would like to add from Triumph Learning “Ladders to Success on the Regents Examinations” series. These materials specifically address those struggling students who are below grade level and are at risk for Regents failure. These books are aligned to the New York Core Performance Indicators and provide scaffolded lessons on 10 key skill areas to support student mastery.


We would like to discontinue the use of Everyday Mathematics in our mathematics component.
We would like to add “New York State Coach Mathematics, March to March edition,” published by Triumph Learning for grades 2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8.

In addition we would like to add “Empire State Mathematics, March to March edition”, published by Continental Press. These researched-based materials are also closely aligned to the NYS Performance standards and we believe will better support the academic success of the students in our program.

For our K-2 students we would like to add “Mathematics: Skills, Concepts, Problem Solving.” These materials support math strands approved by NCTM. They provide practical, real life applications with high engagement math strategies.
