Impressive Reading Gains by Greene County Students Enrolled in READ 180 and System 44 

Read180 Students"Students who struggle with literacy are supported by READ 180 and/or System 44 intervention reading programs that focus on strategic reading and foundational reading respectively. GCS has shown outstanding progress in closing the gap. In the 2013–2014 school year, 75% of the students gained one or more year’s growth in literacy. Moreover, 50% of the students enrolled in READ 180 gained two or more years in literacy as measured by the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI).

These scores reflect some of the highest scores throughout the country. GCS have given all these students a true gift—the gift of literacy. Life will never be the same for these students as they will have many more opportunities to reach their full potential." — Dr. Karen Burke, Director of Academic Planning, Scholastic Inc.
