PALS: Continuing to support literacy intervention and instruction in 2020

The PALS Team is here to support you.

As schools and school districts navigate these challenging times in response to COVID-19, our PALS/Illuminate team is on standby for you, as you make decisions regarding how to support families, teachers, and student learning in the coming months.  We offer some options for support on this page.

PALS spring window is open!

The PALS spring screening window is open for score entry for districts continuing with assessments.

For those who are simply supporting continued literacy instruction or family literacy support based on data collected earlier in the year, your fall and mid-year data and reports, instructional activities, and parent activities continue to be available in your PALS Online accounts.

PALS Monthly Webinars continue to be available to Premier districts throughout the spring, and can be viewed from any location.

  • Our April webinar about sight word acquisition incorporated several ideas for how to support sight word acquisition at home.  You can find the recording of this webinar on the PALS PD website.
  • The May webinar, originally about PALS spring reports, has been changed to the topic, “Teaching Families How to Support Literacy Development.”
