     Two  Increase 3rd grade reading proficiency.

         By 2023, 3rd grade reading proficiency will increase from 21.93% to 44% on the Kansas State Assessments.

    Literacy is the key for student success. Before 3rd grade, students learn to read. After 3rd grade, students read to learn. Students from economically disadvantaged homes are exposed to 30 million fewer words by the time students enter kindergarten.
