This program starts in the 2nd grade. It is a nationally recognized reading program that uses the ATOS formula to measure the complexity of the context of the book that the child is reading. This allows for children to have more choice over the books they read for testing vs the old standard of the teacher assigning the same book to everyone. Books are rated on a scale system that tells you the grade level of the book. An example is a 3.6 level book is what the average 3rd grader in their 6th month of school should be expected to read. The students earn points after reading a book and taking a test on the book. The points they earn are based off how well they score on the test and the complexity of the book.
