THIRD GRADE READING GUARANTEE: As a part of the Third Grade Reading Guarantee, your K-3 child (in the next couple of days) will be coming home with a letter stating whether they are “on track” or “not on track” for Reading. This year, we are using the new STARS Reading and Math programs to identify students’ strengths and weaknesses and these computer-based programs give detailed reports of where your child excels or where they might be need more interventions. If they are identified as “not on track,” your child’s teacher will make a plan for them to receive interventions both in the classroom and if necessary, with our Reading Coaches. Most of our teachers have been trained in a multi-sensory reading program called Orton-Gillingham and have already begun interventions in the classroom. There will be more information to follow on this in the coming days.
