Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading Week

Wednesday August 21, 2013 –

Ensuring that students are reading at grade level by the third grade is a crucial milestone for assuring their long term academic success, because third grade is when most students transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn." AR Governor Mike Beebe declared Aug. 12-16 Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading Week, and the campaign is highlighting community solutions and programs that help young students, families and communities emphasize reading.
