Changes to Two Yearly Project MORE Forms

With the intention of simplifying forms and making their contents more user-friendly, we have changed our agreement form to a guidelines form. The information we obtain from our schools through the Project MORE Partnership Guidelines and Project MORE Demographic Data forms allows us to advocate for veteran and new schools, as well as future Project MORE schools. The data submitted by schools will help support our request for future funding.



Learning A-Z

Learning A-Z agreement states that users of Learning A-Z resources/materials must have a current license. Learning A-Z has extended their special pricing for renewal of a Reading A-Z license, which includes Reading-tutors license, to existing Project MORE schools - $79.95 by using promo code prjctmr2013



Optional Upgrade Available to Project MORE Schools ($60)

Please note that ALL of Learning A-Z leveled books along with many other book types including high frequency word and decodable books are now also available digitally for reading on laptops and tablets. This option can save much time and trouble normally spent on printing, assembling, and storing books.

Learning A-Z offers an additional license, Reading Solution, at a cost of $60 in addition to all of the RAZ and Reading-Tutors resources. This license gives subscribers up to 36 students a password that grants access to over 1500 digital books that can be read or listened to online. Students are also able to record themselves reading. Recordings can be sent to the teacher or Project MORE coordinator who, in turn, can send a personal message back to the student. The system generates reports to the site Project MORE coordinator on number of books read, reading rate, and level progress. Project MORE schools would have the option of having the mentoring session on a desktop, laptop, or tablet. Each book has a quiz online that is auto graded.
