August Reading Academy
Columbus City Schools is offering the 3rd Grade “BLAST OFF WITH A GOOD BOOK” August Reading Academy beginning Monday, August 7, through Thursday, August 17.
The Reading Academy has been designed specifically for our 3rd Grade students who have yet to meet the requirements of the state’s 3rd Grade Reading Guarantee and have not taken the summer assessment.
This special academy will provide targeted reading intervention to help students reach the promotion score on the the NWEA MAP assessment.
Students who achieve the cut score of 196 on the MAP Assessment will be eligible for promotion to the 4th-grade. CCS reading coaches and teachers will lead the learning sessions and engage students in small group reading instruction, an interactive read-aloud, and practice in an online testing environment.
The academy will be held in regional locations across the city, and will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 12:00 p.m. daily. Students will be welcomed each morning with breakfast. Transportation is also available upon request.
