Third Grade Reading Law
Posted: November 13, 2017
In an effort to boost reading achievement, Michigan lawmakers passed Public Act 306 in October 2016. To help more students be proficient by the end of 3rd grade, the law requires extra support for K-3 students who are not at grade level in reading. The law also states that a child may be retained in 3rd grade if he is one or more grade levels behind in reading at the end of 3rd grade. To read more about this law and learn how it might affect your child, please read the Parent's Read-At-Home-Plan for Student Success (PDF).
