Evidence-Based Solutions to Overcome the ‘COVID Slide’

Students across the nation have spent nearly a quarter of the school year away from in-classroom instruction. Due to school closures, research suggests they may only retain about 70 percent of the year’s reading gains. Math skills learning loss is anticipated to be even greater. Newly defined as COVID slide, the loss of skills our students will face is being compared to the annual Summer slide, only more pronounced.

Educators are now tasked with overcoming this skill loss in literacy and math and bridging gaps in students’ foundational knowledge. Explore the evidence-based solutions Voyager Sopris Learning® offers to overcome COVID slide:

  • Literacy and math intervention solutions
  • Standards-aligned assessments
  • Professional learning to help educators serve all student learning needs, whether in the classroom, distance learning, or hybrid learning environments
