BROOKLYN, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amplify, a publisher of next-generation curriculum and assessment programs, announced today the adoption of its early literacy suite — including the Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) curriculum and the mCLASS® Texas Edition reading assessment and intervention program — by the Aldine Independent School District, a large urban district outside of Houston, TX. mCLASS Texas Edition, a full K–6 assessment solution, is one of the only two programs recently approved by the state of Texas as a kindergarten diagnostic and dyslexia screener.

“We are dealing with a dual pandemic,” stated Dr. LaTonya Goffney. “The pandemic of COVID-19 and the pandemic of racism. The way forward is through literacy, a basic human right. For this reason, we are taking a very focused, research-based approach to reading instruction. With Amplify’s integrated early literacy suite, we are ensuring all of our students get the support they need to become skilled and confident readers by third grade."
