Scottsdale, Ariz., DECEMBER 5, 2022 – Imagine Learning, the largest provider of digital curriculum solutions in the U.S., serving 15 million students in more than half the school districts nationwide, today announced that Imagine Learning EL Education’s core language arts and reading program has been approved by the Connecticut State Board of Education for grades K-3. Rooted in the Science of Reading, Imagine Learning EL Education ensures that students acquire the critical skills needed to navigate grade-level text independently.  

“With EL Education and the Imagine Learning Classroom technology application, we’ve developed an integrated solution that empowers educators to spend more time teaching and less time planning,” said Terry Gilligan, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Core Curriculum for Imagine Learning. “We look forward to helping students across Connecticut achieve their reading goals through our resources and instructional supports.”

The Connecticut State Department of Education’s (CDSE) Center for Literacy Research and Reading Success, in consultation with the Reading Leadership Implementation Council, chose Imagine Learning EL Education as one of only five Connecticut-approved K-3 reading curricula. Imagine Learning EL Education met the State’s high standards of quality necessary to contribute to the overall goal of improving reading outcomes and closing learning gaps. CDSE’s requirements for high-quality curricula also include alignment to the Connecticut Core Standards for English language arts.

Imagine Learning EL Education is a comprehensive content-based K-8 core literacy curriculum utilizing compelling real-world texts that engage and excite learners in grades K-8. Rooted in the Science of Reading, the program allows students to focus on mastery of knowledge and skills and demonstrate high-quality work while building habits of character. Imagine Learning EL Education received near-perfect ratings by EdReports, an independent nonprofit designed to improve education through evidence-based reviews of K-12 instructional materials.

Available in both digital and print platforms, Imagine Learning EL Education helps teachers by fully supporting the implementation of the curriculum with integrity, including professional development sessions that guide teachers as they learn how to use it, taking the unique needs of their students into account.
