Literacy Based Promotion Act

over 4 years ago

As you know, reading is the foundation for all learning.  If we expect our students to read on grade level by the 3rd grade, which we should, then we need to make sure we lay the foundation for them to be successful in kindergarten and beyond.  We are excited about the Mississippi Association of Educators' reading campaign "Be a Champion and Read!"  This is a fun opportunity for our students and parents to become engaged in reading.  
     The Mississippi Department of Education's Strong Readers = Strong Leaders literacy campaign is underway!  The goal of this state-wide effort is to improve literacy among all school children.  This effort includes the Literacy-Based Promotion Act, which will help ensure that every student reads at or above grade level by the end of 3rd grade.  Click on links under Literacy tab to learn more.
