Reading Intervention Program
What is it?
READ 180 is a reading intervention program used at Norco High School for 9th grade students who read at least two years below grade level.
How It Works
READ 180 includes whole-group instruction and three small-group rotations, adaptive software, differentiated instruction, and independent reading.
All 8th graders at Norco Intermediate and Auburndale Intermediate Schools were assessed in the spring of 2016. Students who performed at a 600-900 Lexile score demonstrate the greatest need and will benefit the most with this intervention.
The Class (during the school year)
The class is a two-period block, which means it is two periods back-to-back, in a student's schedule. One period will satisfy the 9th grade Language Arts required credits, while the second period will provide elective credit to each student enrolled in the course. Both a general ed and special ed READ 180 courses will be offered during the 2016-17 school year. (Only students with an IEP and have the READ 180 course written into the student's IEP will be placed in the Special Ed READ 180 course, whereas all other students who qualify will attend the general ed class.) READ 180 is taught by a Language Arts credentialed teacher.
To avoid taking up one elective class in a student's schedule to take the two-period block version during the regular school year, incoming 9th graders are provided with the opportunity to take a summer class during June 2016 for four weeks (Monday through Thursday). The summer READ 180 class is held at Norco High School for two hours during the month of June.
