Approved List of Core Curriculum and Instructional Materials

Under ORC 3313.6028(B), the Department is responsible for establishing a list of English language arts core curriculum and instructional materials aligned with the science of reading and effective literacy instruction strategies.

The Department’s list of approved core curriculum and instructional materials is provided below and includes all materials that met the required criteria for prekindergarten and kindergarten-grade 5. The review process is ongoing for vendors that may have elected to appeal the Department’s Phase 2 decision.

To learn more about approved core curriculum and instructional materials, including contact information and program details provided by the respective vendor, access the hyperlinked product title. Full vendor and program information for newly approved materials will be available in late June.

While all vendors on the approved list meet the standards for High Quality Instructional Materials in English Language Arts, districts and schools should carefully review materials to determine which materials best meet the needs of their students and educators.
