10 How will the State determine that your child is reading at grade level? YEAR ROUND CALENDAR STUDENTS

11 The State uses the EOG to determine reading proficiency. If a student isn’t ‘proficient’, they can avoid repeating the 3 rd grade by attending 6 weeks of reading camp. To prevent retention in 3 rd grade, we will use data to predict if your child is at risk. At risk students will be invited to attend reading camp during track out periods. YEAR ROUND CALENDAR STUDENTS

12 How will the State determine that your child is reading at grade level? Does the data tell us that your child is at-risk for failing the reading section of the EOG? YEAR ROUND CALENDAR STUDENTS  Yes. Your child is invited to 6 weeks of reading camp. Camp takes place the first two weeks of three track- out periods.

13 If your child is determined to not be reading at grade level, you have two choices:  Attend Camp  Decline Camp Your child will be retested at the end of camp and move into the 4th grade. Children who are still not reading at grade level will have a ‘retention label’ and receive additional support. The retention label will be removed if the child demonstrates proficiency by mid-year of 4th grade. Your child will be evaluated at the end of the year. If it is determined that your child is not reading at grade level, your child will repeat the 3rd grade. YEAR ROUND CALENDAR STUDENTS

14 How will the State determine that your child is reading at grade level? Does the data tell us that your child is at-risk for failing the reading section of the EOG?
