RIHS Greatest Area of Need (GAN)

RIHS Greatest Area of Need (GAN) RIHS has determined its greatest area of need (GAN) to be improving reading comprehension in three key areas:  main ideas, supporting details and vocabulary. Beginning on Sept. 25 and continuing through October 2, we will administer our GAN pre- assessment as a means of measuring and monitoring our students’ progress.  Students will take this assessment on our Acuity testing system.  9th and 10th grade students will take the assessment in their math classes and 11th and 12th grade students will take the assessment in their English classes. Students will be actively involved in monitoring their scores and progress as we will administer this assessment three times during this school year.  The goal is for every student to improve.  Read More →
