District Piloting 2 Language Arts Programs


Please see the information below. The district will be piloting two new elementary language arts programs for next year with the intent of one of the programs being the chosen language arts program going forward. Nowlin will be taking part in the pilot. Specifically we will be piloting in Kindergarten and First grade. If you would like to get a jumpstart on what these programs entail please attend the below meeting on Thursday, May 16, between 3:45-5:30.

To:   Parents and District Staff

When:  Thursday, May 16, 2019 between 3:45 pm – 5:30 pm                      

Where:  ASC, Board Room  18700 Audette, Dearborn 48124


Please join us to review the two elementary language arts (reading and writing) programs that will be piloted next year:


  • Benchmark (Benchmark Learning)
  • ReadyGen (Pearson)


Dearborn Public Schools will be piloting each of these highly rated programs in grades kindergarten – 5th grade for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Teachers selected for the pilot will use the same program for the entire year. All teachers will receive training. A resource subcommittee reviewed six programs and rated each through a rigorous process designed to identify the most relevant instructional resources.


At the end of the pilot period it is anticipated that an elementary language arts program will be recommended for adoption for the 20-21 school year for all elementary classrooms.
