The UPSTART program is accepting 200 learners during the 2019-2020 school year to participate in the program at no charge.


ND Reading Academy

North Dakota's Center for Distance Education (NDCDE) has partnered with Waterford to provide the same adaptive software used in the UPSTART program to all young learner's Pre-K - Grade 2 with a focus on Reading only. With only 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week, learners will actively engage with fun reading content at their own ability level with the goal of getting them to grade level. NDCDE's standard course enrollment fees apply to this program.
