Reading Plus, an online program that provides “personalized intervention and instruction for students” in reading and literacy, has been approved as a research-backed resource in Baltimore City Public Schools – a district that serves nearly 80,000 students. The program has achieved the highest level of evidence required by the Every Student Student Succeeds Act, having completed a “well-designed and well-implemented experimental study.” The program claims to be able to help students increase reading proficiency by as much as 2.5 grades in a single academic year.
