LCS 2024 K-5 Literacy Textbook Review

The Virginia Literacy Act requires each school division to select textbooks from the VDOE-approved list to implement as a Core Curriculum for K-5 literacy. This implementation is required during the 2024-25 school year. LCS had a first-round review team with representation composed of literacy coaches, principals, and members of the Curriculum & Instruction team.  The next round will be conducted at the school level with the top two publishers from the first round review.
