Third Grade Reading Action Team

The Third Grade Reading Action Team was launched this year and we are on our way to our first summer reading intervention project!

3rd Grade Literacy Team Project:

Goal: Increase the number of students in Marin who can read proficiently by 3rd grade.

  • Currently 62% (29% of students from low-income families)

Focus: Provide K-3 students who are behind in reading (estimated at 4,000) with a summer program that will reduce summer slippage in ‘literacy skills’

Short Term Goal: Identify 4 (2-5) existing summer programs and their district partners who will collaborate with community partners for the 2017 summer to enhance their program’s literacy and parent engagement components and assess their students pre and post literacy levels.

 

Stay Tuned for program outcomes!
