What's Happening in Language Arts?
As part of meeting the Third-Grade Reading Guarantee (TGRG), all third grade students were administered a reading diagnostic by mid-September. If the assessment revealed that the student was “not on-track” to be reading at grade level by the end of the year, parents were notified in writing that a reading deficiency was identified. Intervention using research-based reading strategies targeted at the student’s area of need have begun with the students being placed on a RIMP (Reading Improvement Monitoring Plan). As evidenced by six years worth of OAA data, we have found our intervention tutoring program to be highly successful. According to the TGRG, third grade students must meet a minimum score of 392 on the reading assessment to be promoted to fourth grade.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving,
