Will your third grade students be reading to at least grade level this year?  Data suggests some significant fall-out if this is not the case.  For example:
  • One in six children who are not reading proficiently in third grade do not graduate from high school on time, a rate four times greater than that for proficient readers.
  • The rates are highest for the low, below-basic readers: 23 percent of these children drop out or fail to finish high school on time, compared to 9 percent of children with basic reading skills and 4 percent of proficient readers.
  • The below-basic readers account for a third of the sample but three-fifths of the students who do not graduate.
Many schools and school districts are turning to Amplify for help in putting students on the path to reading success...and future successes as well! Amplify Reading is an amazing digital tool which helps struggling readers and helps proficient readers to grow even more!  Join us for a look!!
