Empower Meaningful Learning through
Extended Standards

Real-time alignment to your states’ extended standards

Since our founding more than 20 years ago on the belief that everyone can learn, n2y has delivered differentiated content that enables students to learn, meet expectations, and demonstrate their knowledge according to their ability level. Today, in keeping with federal and state mandates for grade‑specific, “challenging” academic standards, Unique Learning System gives students with unique learning needs access to the same concepts as their peers in general education through their state’s grade level extended standards.

Raise the bar for educational expectations

In compliance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Unique Learning System aligns with each state’s extended standards to allow unique learners to achieve mastery. Our content experts continuously monitor changes to standards and update materials as needed to ensure students achieve consistent and ongoing growth in academic and transition skills.

Standards are woven throughout Unique Learning System! They can be exported directly from the Teacher Dashboard for easy reference and reporting. Already aligned with state extended standards, lessons clearly list each one that applies within their summary. Student Daily Performance offers a handy view of what general and extended standards students are mastering in each activity they complete. Tracked Skills allows state standards to be recorded as part of a skill goal and links to standards-aligned resources for instruction.

standards compliance

Easy access to lessons and activities that are differentiated to three levels enables teachers to simultaneously and efficiently reach students of varying ability levels and chronological grade levels in one lesson.
