Read By Grade Three Law

Read By Grade Three Law

"Reading proficiently by the end of third grade has become a significant milestone in a student's educational trajectory as it marks the time when the focus is placed on reading to learn instead of learning to read. To encourage local schools and districts to take this milestone seriously, in 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed a law that requires schools to identify learners who are struggling with reading and writing and to provide additional support. The law also states that third graders may repeat third grade if they are more than one grade level behind in reading. This page serves as a point of information to keep Lincoln Consolidated Schools’ parents and guardians informed about the law."
