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.
