• Read180 and System44 is a reading intervention program for students who are below grade level in reading (as indicated as strategic and intensive on the reading inventory).  This program uses Lexile Framework, a system that evaluates both reading ability and text difficulty. Students enrolled in Read180 or System44 come for one hour of reading intervention each day. The program’s 60-minute class consists of three different 20 minute rotations: teacher-led small group, instructional software, and independent reading with R180/S44 library books. There are about 60 students who are currently enrolled in System44 and Read180 at Belvedere Elementary. Our students last year read almost two million words for a yearly average Lexile gain of more than 193 points! Students can show tremendous growth on their Reading Inventory, benchmarks, and grades through this program.

    A student must be on their best behavior in order to maximize their success in this program. Parents will be notified of misbehavior through email, phone call, and/or note home. If a student constantly misbehaves, they may be removed from Read180 or System44.
