3rd Grade Reading Law
Transcript of 3rd Grade Reading Law
What do I need to know as a parent (cont.)?
Reading improvement plan will occur in small groups during the school day. Your child will not miss regular reading instruction. (Needed Areas)
Starting in the
school year, in order to be promoted from 3rd to 4th grade, your child must score less than one year behind on the state reading assessment, or demonstrate a 3rd grade reading level through an alternate test or portfolio of student work.
If you are notified your child may be retained, you have the right to meet with school officials and to request, within 30 days, an exemption if in the best interest of your child. The district superintendent will make the final decision.
Talk to and with your kids a lot — knowing more words helps kids to better understand the words they read.
Encourage writing — Let children write the sounds they hear; spelling is developmental and a work in progress.
Be involved in your child’s education and support the reading plan if your child has one.
What do I need to know as a parent?
Your child's reading growth will be closely monitored from kindergarten
If your child is not reading where expected, a plan to improve reading will be created.
What does this mean?
1. The school will work with your child to find where your child needs support in his/her reading development 2. Create a plan to support him or her
This plan includes:
Extra instruction or support in areas of need.
Ongoing checks on reading progress.
A read-at-home plan that encourages you and your child to read and write outside of the school day.
Your child may be encouraged to participate in summer reading programs or afterschool tutoring.
