All of our students receive access to an iReady log-in. This is a web-based program for both Reading and Math that students access weekly using their school Google log-in information.
Students take a diagnostic test in August, December, and May to identify their learning progress and skill gaps. While classroom instruction is matched to grade-level standards, iReady is adaptive, providing students practice at their next level of need even if they are working below or above grade level. iReady lessons are often completed outside of the classroom, and we recommend students log at least 45 minutes of practice each week.

At Seaside Middle School, we believe that every child should receive explicit academic language support in every classroom,every day. We utilize language goals in the planning process to intentionally integrate specific instruction for speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Additionally, we offer three levels of programming for designated English learners. Students' English language development is monitored throughout the school year, and students can test into the next intensive level of coursework mid-year. All English learners take the ELPAC each year, and we continue to monitor their progress for four years after redesignation.
Level 1: Newcomer Program; National Geographic
Level 2: Intensive English: Read 180
