What is Read to Achieve?
Read to Achieve
For the 2013-14 school year, the North Carolina General Assembly passed the Read to Achieve Law for all third-graders and it was implemented in all North Carolina public schools. The Read to Achieve law clearly defines the expectations: “The goal of the state is to ensure that every student reads at or above grade level by the end of third grade and continues to progress in reading proficiency so that he or she can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success.” By the end of third grade, students are expected to be independent readers. This means they can read and understand words, sentences, and paragraphs and answer comprehension questions about their reading.
