The Portage Public Schools are now in the second year of a three-year program aimed at developing a balanced high school reading program. The first phase of the program began last year with a corrective reading program geared to those students whose reading ability was no more than three years below grade level and who were of average or above intelligence. The students selected for the program also showed some disparity between their verbal and non verbal Lorge-Thorndike scores. The corrective reading classes (fifteen to a section) met five days a week in a reading laboratory for intensive reading instruction.
