3rd Grade Reading Law

3rd Grade Reading Law - What you need to know

In 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed the Third Grade Reading Law in an effort to ensure that students exit 3rd grade reading at or above grade level.  The law will impact the 2017/2018 transitional kindergarten (TK), kindergarten, and 1st grade students by the time they are in 3rd grade. In accordance with this law, we will continue to conduct reading assessments with TK – 3rd grade students. These assessments will identify students who need intensive reading instruction and intervention and will also provide useful information to help teachers tailor instruction to meet individual student needs.

Visit the District's Curriculum page to see a letter from Scott Francis, Director of Curriculum, Technology, Assessment and Grants, DIBELS facts for parents, a Parent Guide to Public Act 306 and the District's Read at Home Plan for Student Success.

Message from Ms. Krehbiel

  • Burton is in a good place because of the assessments we have been using and the interventions and procedures that we have had in place for many years now.
  • A District 3rd Grade Reading Law committee has been formed to ensure that we comply with the law while continuing to do what is best for children. This committee will also play a large role in determining how our individual Reading Plans are developed, for those students who need them.
  • We will continue to use Fountas & Pinnell as our diagnostic reading assessment.
  • DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) will be used as a screener assessment, three times per year, to help us determine which students are in need of additional support in reading. This will be done in grades TK‐3. DIBELS are a set of procedures and measurements for assessing the acquisition of early literacy skills. They are designed to be short (one minute) fluency measures used to regularly monitor the development of early literacy and early reading skills.
  • Our assessments are scheduled to be completed by October 24th.
  • Berkley has hired an ELA coach who will be working in collaboration with teachers in all of our elementary buildings.
  • All parents can look forward to reviewing a letter from Scott Francis, Director of Curriculum and Technology, explaining the law and Reading Plans.  This should be arriving in the next few weeks.
  • At parent –teacher conferences, on October 25th and 26th, teachers will share reading assessment results and Reading Plans.
