reading groups
Reading Groups

Only way to improve reading scores is by reading….

Student are placed into reading groups according to their reading score from their last EPAS test.

All students will be assigned the same assignment within these reading groups but each group will have specified questions targeted at growing their individual reading score.

Students are eligible to move out of their current reading groups by improving their reading score on in class or school wide administered tests.
