Seven Voyager Learning | Sopris Learning Solutions Chosen As Part Of The Colorado READ Act

DALLAS, April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager Learning | Sopris Learning, a provider of results-based education solutions, products, and services that improve school and student performance, today announced that seven of the company's programs have been approved as part of the Colorado Reading to Ensure Academic Development Act ( Colorado READ Act) and are included on the state's READ Act Advisory Lists of Professional Development and Instructional Programming. The Colorado READ Act is a strong call to action for all residents of Colorado to improve state literacy rates.


Voyager Learning | Sopris Learning solutions on Colorado's READ Act Advisory Lists include:

  • DIBELS ® Deep

Professional Development:
  • LETRS ® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling)
  • Voyager Education Services

Instructional Programming:
  • RAVE-O ®
  • Read Well ®
  • Sound Partners
  • Voyager Passport ®

Data published in 2011 by the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP) indicated that more than 26 percent of Colorado's third grade students were not reading at grade level. In response to this disturbing statistic, Gov. John Hickenlooper and Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia presented a plan on Feb. 29, 2012, to help ensure that every child in the state learns to read. Teaming closely with the Colorado Department of Education, the Colorado READS Act is tackling children's literacy issues around health and development risks, early learning program quality, assessments, the early childhood work force, professional development, and access to the most effective preschool and full-day kindergarten programs.

"We share the belief with Governor Hickenlooper and Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia that early literacy is a cornerstone of quality education and is essential to building productive and engaged citizens in Colorado and throughout our nation," says George Logue, president of Voyager Learning | Sopris Learning. "We are truly honored and proud to be selected as a partner in this important effort that impacts so many young lives."

Legislative priorities in the plan include the creation of an Office of Early Childhood and the co-location of programs strengthening interagency partnerships and collaboration to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of childhood and youth supports, services, and programs in Colorado.
