State reading initiative shared with school board Tuesday
January 23, 2020
With goals for at least 75 percent of third graders to be proficient readers by 2025, the Tennessee Department of Education rolled out Read to Be Ready in 2016.
Lewis County Schools did not adopt the program, Supervisor of Teaching and Learning Pat Couch explained to members of the Lewis County School Board last Tuesday, January 14, 2020. "And we outscored districts who used it."
All members of the board were present with Chairman Glenda Atkinson presiding.
As it goes with state programs, the Read to Be Ready initiative was replaced with Science of Reading. New commissioner, new program.
