     Reading Intervention Programs Implemented at ELMS          
     
    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.
     
     
     
     Remote Learning Information and Absent Students
     
     
    Greetings Parents and Reading Eagles:                                  
     
     It is extremely important that all students continue their Read 180 and System 44  learning pathways daily in order to ensure their continued Lexile growth and literacy readiness.
    If you have any questions or need instructional support email me at tboyd@henry.k12.ga.us.  Students can also post questions in Google Classroom.

    Daily Literacy Goals- When students are absent they are able to utilize their platforms at home.
