I am looking for some information on the READ 180 program from Scholastic. If anyone is using this program would you be willing to share your thoughts, pros and cons????? Thanks!

Pros:

Research-based (very, very few programs are truly research-based, although all claim to be)
Measurable improvement in just months
Kids like it--it's engaging

Cons:

Expensive
Can only serve as many kids as you have licenses for. We have about 500 kids who could use it, but due to expense and licenses, we only serve 25.
You need a block schedule to implement correctly.
You need lots of computers.

Thank you for your input! We are looking for programs to incorporate in RTI. I have sent for material to preview but it really helps to hear from people who have used it! Thanks again
