This document is designed as a resource to assist North Carolina schools in providing the best programs and strategies in the areas of acceleration, remediation, and intervention. The best practices described here are applicable to most students, including students with disabilities.

The first section lists strategies for improving reading, writing, and mathematics proficiency; related publications by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction; and other resources. The second section, submitted by the Black Leadership Caucus of the General Assembly, lists eight effective strategies for teaching African American students and notes related research and examples of possible actions. A section on effective strategies for teaching Native American students was endorsed by the Office of Indian Education.

A section on programs validated by the NDN profiles 22 programs, including grade level, resources needed, areas addressed, and a brief description. The final section presents 35 programs and strategies supported by research and positive anecdotal evidence.
