Nevada's Read by Grade 3-Phase II State Grant (2016-2017)


Kevin Laxalt


On July 1, 2015, the Nevada State Legislature enacted Senate Bill 391, Nevada’s Read by Grade Three Act. A primary aim of this new state statute is to promote effective literacy instruction in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade across both public school districts and charter schools of Nevada in order to ensure that all K-3 students achieve a proficiency level of achievement in the subject area of reading (as measured by reading assessments that have been approved by the Nevada State Board of Education).
