Reflecting increased expectations for K–5 student learning and mastery within the context of the Common Core State Standards, the Florida Department of Education's criteria for state adoption of approved materials for English language arts has become significantly more rigorous. As core components of Florida's 2012–2013 statewide curriculum, these proven, research-based literacy intervention solutions from Voyager Learning will help build the foundation necessary to accelerate Florida's K–5 students on their personalized paths to college readiness and career success.

The Cambium/Voyager Learning reading solutions approved in the Florida State Adoption are:

  • Read Well : K–2 mastery-based reading and language arts curriculum using whole-class activities and differentiated small-group instruction to build reading proficiency.
  • Voyager Passport:  K–5 reading solution providing a blend of print instruction and technology to help struggling learners master priority skills and strategies to reach grade-level performance.

"We are honored that the Florida Department of Education has chosen Real Well and Voyager Passport as part of the 2012–2013 Florida State Adoption," said John Campbell, chief executive officer of Cambium Learning Group, Inc. "Along with the other distinguished publishers on this list, we are proud to play a pivotal role in significantly enhancing student literacy and achievement in Florida."
