• New!  Read 180 After-School Program

    Open to all interested students.

    What is Read 180?

    READ 180 is a comprehensive system of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development proven to raise reading achievement for struggling readers in grades 4—12+.

    BCIT tests students for their Lexile score, which is a reading level indicator.  High school students should score between the following levels to be considered on grade level:

    Grade 9:  1000-1200 Lexile

    Grade 10: 1025-1250 Lexile

    Grade 11: 1050-1300 Lexile

    Grade 12: 1050-1300 Lexile

    Anyone scoring 100 or more points below their target level would be a candidate for the Read 180 program.

    The program will run every Monday and Wednesday from 3:00-4:20.  Students may take the 4:30 bus, but must sign up in the library at least 24 hours in advance.

    All students staying after for Read 180 must report to the cafeteria until 3:00.
