O Kids Running At School

According to results recently released by the N.C. State Board of Education in its report to the N.C. General Assembly, Improve K-3 Literacy Accountability Measures Comprehensive Plan for Reading Achievement, 90 percent of WCPSS third-graders in the 2013-14 school year qualified for promotion to fourth grade this year under the new Read to Achieve initiative.

This result is 2.8 percentage points above the state average of 87.3 percent. Wake third-graders demonstrated their reading proficiency by passing either the Beginning-of-Grade 3 English Language Arts/Reading assessment; End-of-Grade 3 English Language Arts/Reading assessment; Read to Achieve Alternative Test; alternative local, state-approved assessments for reading; or a complete reading portfolio.
