We strive daily to ensure that our students are college and career ready. For our students that may need extra support, we offer two personalized reading programs to support literacy, learning and growth.
1) Read 180 is the leading blended learning intervention program building reading comprehension, academic vocabulary, and writing skills for struggling students in Grades 4 and up. Research for READ 180 began in 1985, when Dr. Ted Hasselbring of Vanderbilt University developed breakthrough software that used each student's performance data to customize a path of reading instruction.
2) System 44 is a foundational reading program designed for the most challenged struggling readers in Grades 3-12. Intentionally metacognitive, System 44 helps students understand that the English language is a finite system of 44 sounds and 26 letters that can be mastered.
