Read by 3rd Grade Law for Parents
In 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed a law that requires schools to identify learners who are struggling with reading and writing. The law outlines how schools need to provide additional help and work with students and families to help all kids read by grade three.
Schools have been developing Individualized Reading Improvement Plans, or IRIPs, for students in Grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade who are not reading at grade level. Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, the state will recommend that third graders repeat third grade if they are more than one grade level behind based on the state tests for reading.
What does this really mean? What will this really look like for struggling readers? How have schools been preparing for these changes? How can parents prepare?
Join us on October 29 to learn how schools have been preparing, tips for parents, how supports are planned for students with IEPs, and to ask questions you may have.
It takes all of us working together to help our students in West Michigan be successful!
