NC READ TO ACHIEVE
What is Read to Achieve?
Read to Achieve is part of the Excellent Schools Act passed into NC law in July 2012 and applies to all schools beginning 2013-2014 school year. Read to Achieve focuses on preparing students to be proficient readers by the end of 3rd grade. North Carolina state law now requires third grades who are not reading at a proficient level on the end-of-grade test be given extra attention.
