|ACHIEVE3000||Tier I literacy program for all freshmen enrolled in Discovering Technologies
and Global StudiesIC. Achieve 3000 is an online program that offers over 10,000 articles all written at varying lexile levels. Students take an initial lexile leveler assessment and then read and respond to the same article, but written at the lexile level of each individual student. Students retest after completing 40 articles and then the lexile level is reset in order to continue to challenge the students to grow in their reading abilities.
|READ180||Monte Vista has established four sections of reading support classes. All freshmen enrolled in English IC were administered the NorthWestern Evaluation and Assessment (NWEA) diagnostic test that provided a breakdown of gaps for each student's literacy levels/skills. In conjunction with our feeder middle school recommendations, their NWEA results, and their ELA CST scores, students scoring below sixth grade level and/or scoring Far Below Basic or Below Basic on their most recent CST English Language Arts were possible candidates for a reading support class. Along with retesting all reading students at the end of the first semester and end of the year to help determine growth and persistent gaps, the Oral Language Fluency (OLF) assessment is given to students in the Reading Program in order to further gauge their growth. As mentioned earlier, using Title I funds, 20 new computers and the online version of Read 180 were purchased over the summer.|
