Professional learning tailored to California’s educational priorities
CORE Learning’s Online Language & Literacy Academy (OL&LA) is designed to complement the Literacy Coaches and Reading Specialists (LCRS) program in California, aligning with the objectives of California Assembly Bill 181 and Senate Bill 114. The LCRS program provides funds to develop literacy programs, employ and train literacy coaches and reading specialists, and develop and implement interventions for students needing targeted literacy support.
Building upon the LCRS program framework, CORE Learning’s Online Language & Literacy Academy (OL&LA) offers asynchronous, personalized professional learning for literacy. OL&LA integrates evidence-based reading instruction, second-language acquisition research, and CORE’s acclaimed Teaching Reading Sourcebook. This Structured Literacy course is specifically tailored for educators in language-diverse classrooms that include Multilingual Learners, English variety speakers, and students with dyslexia.
