The program is the only comprehensive ELA K–5 program in the state to get the top Tier 1 rating

New York, NY – (May 30, 2018) Amplify, a company that creates next-generation curriculum and assessment programs, announced today that Louisiana rated the second edition of Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts (Amplify CKLA) as Tier 1, the top rating in the state. Amplify CKLA is the only K–5 Tier 1 ELA program in Louisiana that includes foundational skills.

Amplify CKLA is a comprehensive curriculum that brings a proven, systematic approach to foundational skills together with knowledge-rich reading, writing, speaking, and listening activities. Based on widely recognized cognitive science and reading research, Amplify CKLA offers two distinct strands (knowledge and skills) for grades K–2 and integrates them into one for grades 3–5.

Amplify CKLA 1st Edition materials had been previously listed as Tier 1 in Louisiana. According to the Louisiana Department of Education website, Tier 1 materials exemplify quality, meet all non-negotiable criteria, and scored the best possible on all indicators of superior quality.

“We are thrilled that Louisiana recognized the strength of Amplify CKLA and gave it a Tier-1 rating,” said Alexandra Clarke, senior vice president and general manager of ELA curriculum at Amplify. “Many educators in Louisiana have seen exciting progress in their classrooms with Amplify CKLA, and we hope that this Tier-1 rating will enable more schools in the state to bring the world to their students with our knowledge-rich curriculum.”
