Today, public schools are facing an increase in populations of students who are low achievers, students whose primary language is not English, and students with disabilities. Many high school students enter high school with reading levels below grade level which has created an achievement gap. Online schools are increasing in a many states to offer an alternative educational choice. The purpose of this paper is to discuss a study that was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of using a validated instructional practice implemented via online instruction to improve the reading level of high school students. Overall, improving students' reading ability has a long term and profound effect on society. Completing high school is a milestone that is associated with higher income, more stable employment, and less dependency on public assistance.
