Available August 11th

Dear Families,

Your child will be using READ 180, a multimedia program that blends teacher instruction with innovative technology to help students become better readers.

We hope that you visit this website often. When you do, you will:

  • Learn more about how READ 180 works and what happens in the classroom.
  • Find out how your child’s progress is measured so you can get ready for parent-teacher conferences.
  • Get information and tips on how to help your child improve as a reader and a student.

All of us at Scholastic feel privileged to be able to support students, teachers, and families. Over the last few weeks, I’ve received a number of questions about READ 180’s new eReads, and so we have developed this downloadable FAQ to help answer any questions you may have about them. Please feel free to contact me with other questions and comments at .

Francie Alexander
Happy reading!
