No comment forum defined for this notice.

The State Board of Education is accepting public comment on curriculum related to the Virginia Literacy Act. Seeking to improve K-5 literacy outcomes for all students in the Commonwealth, the VLA requires the Virginia Department of Education to recommend instructional programs in literacy aligned with the eligibility criteria of the VLA—namely, evidence-based literacy instruction and science-based reading research for approval by the Virginia Board of Education. In June 2023, the Board approved an initial list of K-3 core instructional materials 

Public Review Sites 

Cycle II core instructional programs submitted for review by Virginia Literacy Partnerships (VLP) in the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Virginia in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Education and under consideration for Board approval are available for public inspection utilizing links provided on the Curriculum Review Process Update for the Virginia Literacy Act page until December 9, 2023. The Virginia Board of Education will reconvene on December 12, 2023. 

Public comment regarding the VLA Curriculum Review may be submitted through this survey or via e-mail to no later than December 9, 2023.
