College Access Readers

Leadership Public Schools (LPS) is a network of four urban charter high schools in the California Bay Area. The majority of LPS students enter 9 th grade reading far below grade level but all participate in college preparatory courses.
 
Given this reality, LPS leverages CK-12  not only to develop low-cost, tailored textbooks, but also to scaffold these to provide better access for our students.  Specifically, LPS is embedding literacy scaffolds directly into CK-12 Algebra, Geometry, and Biology materials to create flexbooks called College Access Readers.
 
Students with higher-level literacy skills use the original CK-12 content flexed to our scope and sequence. The lowest readers will soon access the materials through text-to-speech versions or Spanish translations.
