One TCSS priority is Literacy. This means the school system wants to increase reading levels for all students. TCSS implemented three reading programs (iRead, Read180, System44) to help achieve this goal. These programs allow students to learn elements of literacy that help increase reading, comprehension, and writing skills. Students who participate in these programs have seen reading gains as shown in this video.
Thanks to Christy Nolan and the students of Berta Weathersbee Elementary for sharing your Lexile (reading) levels! Please 'click' the photo to access the video.
