We are excited to release the results of our recent study of Raz-Plus in Milwaukee Public Schools. Raz-Plus is a literacy program that includes leveled books, skills practice, and digital activities and assessments.

Nearly 25,000 students across 120 schools in the district completed over 3 million Raz-Plus activities during the study year.

This study added to a growing body of evidence, both in Milwaukee Public Schools and other districts around the country, demonstrates the effectiveness of Learning A-Z’s independent leveled curriculum products for literacy.
