Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

Okapi Educational Publishing, inc. publishes Common Core State Standards based print and technology materials for Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. Our team works with each school/district to determine which products and services best meet the educational needs of each student, teacher, staff, school, and/or district.

The materials in our various lines are carefully structured and leveled to cater to many different reading levels in the classroom -- from intervention levels to above-grade levels. The books are highly supportive of students as they learn to read and read to learn in small groups. Throughout the instructional plans, teachers can choose a variety of activities personalized for the students to participate in pairs and groups to continue developing fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?

Okapi is able to provide on-site support as part of district level proposals to observe, support, and assess the effectiveness of our materials and instruction in the classroom. Increase in student’s reading level, as assessed by the teachers and staff, is another component. If classrooms are using the programs with fidelity, standardized test scores are used to gauge the long-term effectiveness of the programs.
