Parents, community members invited to Read by Third Grade task force

Dearborn Public Schools is creating a parent and community task force to look at the Read by Third Grade law scheduledPR 21 Read by 3rd grade Maples students to take effect next year.  Under the law, any third grader who is considered more than a year behind in reading must be recommended to repeat the grade.

The task force will allow the community to learn more about the complicated law and offer input on how the district addresses it.

“The goal is to strengthen the planning process and to ensure that the community is informed and engaged in the success of every student,” said Jill Chochol, Executive Director of Student Achievement for the Edsel Ford Feeder Track.  She is also spearheading the district’s Read by Third Grade initiative.

Community members who are interested in participating on the committee are encouraged to sign up here. The district has also created a Read by Third Grade blog, where information will be posted as it becomes available.  Visitors can subscribe to the blog to stay up to date.

The current second graders are the first students who will be retained under the law.
