MYcroSchool Gainesville staff receive professional development for the new reading program for the campus to improve student learning.

MYcroSchool Gainesville staff received training on how best to implement the new reading program.

MYcroSchool Gainesville is introducing a new reading program in an effort to improve student learning.

The program blends the Great Leaps approach with classroom-based learning facilitated by a staff member. In addition, college students will be helping as reading tutors!

Great Leaps develops and increases student fluency in reading.  Students increase on average 2 years in 1 year.  The program is easy to integrate into the current school day.

MYcroSchool Gainesville is using the Great Leaps reading program to help students get back on-track to graduation.

Great Leaps Creator Kenneth Campbell explains the reading program which aims to accelerate student learning and help students get back on-track to graduation.

All staff and reading tutors from the University of Florida will begin the program October 1st to reach as many students as possible.
