Strengthening Student Educational Outcomes

English Language Arts: Menu of Best Practices & Strategies
Updated February 2017

The ELA menu targets two groups: LAP students in grades K–12 and all students in grades K–4. At the heart of the menu is a focus on accelerating student ELA performance. Districts providing LAP behavior services must use a practice or strategy from the ELA menu. Under certain conditions described in the OSPI guidelines, districts may use a practice not on the menu as long as data shows the practice is effective.

Summit 16 – Accelerating Student Outcomes: Joyful Interventions & Best Practices is a two-day summit focused on implementing effective reading interventions in Grades K-5, at the Tacoma Convention Center May 12 & 13, 2017.
