About Read 180

READ 180 helps educators meet the accountability requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) also known as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The legislation states that five essential elements must be part of an effective reading program: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and text comprehension. READ 180 addresses these fundamental reading components and also helps schools meet other NCLB requirements from providing superb assessment tools to offering quality professional development.
