Resource Title Reading/Language Arts Adoption Toolkit

The Reading/Language Arts (RLA) Adoption Toolkit is intended to help districts use a data-driven process to facilitate the selection of State Board of Education-approved publisher programs for instruction in language arts and intensive reading intervention. The Toolkit is available to educators who have participated in a face-to-face RLA Toolkit training offered through a California county office of education. The face-to-face training guides educators in using Toolkit resources effectively. In addition, this Toolkit Support Web Site, available to those who have attended the training, includes web resources and video clips that supplement material found in the Toolkit publication and face-to-face trainings. For access to this training and the web site, please contact your RLA Regional Lead:
