3rd Grade Literacy
At HPS, we have a focus on ensuring all of our students will be able to read well and independently by the end of 3rd grade. To this end, we have put many supports in place like Transitional Kindergarten, intervention time daily for K-3 students, and more adults in classrooms to help students with the all-important task of reading.
In the fall of 2016, Governor Snyder signed a bill into law that will affect students in the 2019-20 school year. Students will need to show that they are reading on grade level in order to proceed to the next grade.
HPS currently is working on a plan for ensuring that students will be successful on this end of 3rd-grade reading test. More information to follow.
