Summary: This learning resource is intended to be used by teachers in grades K - 12. As it is a technology-based tool, it has not been adopted by the Virginia Department of Education. Per School Board Policy IIAA, staff has reviewed materials currently adopted by the Virginia Department of Education and have deemed these suggested resources to be better suited to the specific curricular goals and needs of the students in Albemarle County Schools.

Snap and Read is both a browser-based and locally installed reading tool designed to support diverse reading needs. Students and teachers can use Snap and Read to level reading tasks, translate text, organize/cite information from the web and provide read-aloud support through text to speech. In addition, Snap and Read can provide text-to-speech capabilities at various speeds, pitches and accents. This tool has been used in the division and is considered a resource to provide access to grade level material for all students. This, in turn, assures equity for all students to access quality instructional materials, regardless of need.
