K-3 Legislation
It is the goal of the state
to have every student in
the state’s public
education system
reading on or above
grade level by the end
of the third grade.
K-3 Legislation
• The legislature recognizes that:
o Reading is the most fundamental skill, the gateway to
knowledge and lifelong learning
o There is an ever increasing demand for literacy in the
highly technological society we live in
o Students who do not learn to read will be
economically and socially disadvantaged
o Reading problems exist in almost every classroom
o Almost all reading failure is preventable if reading
difficulties are diagnosed and treated early
o Early identification and treatment of reading
difficulties can result in students learning to read by
the end of the third grade

The Foundation for Life-long
Success is Literacy
“Early literacy (instruction) plays a key role in
enabling the kind of early learning
experiences that research shows are linked
with academic achievement, reduced grade
retention, higher graduation rates, and
enhanced productivity in adult life.”
--Dorothy Strickland, Professor Emeritus – Rutgers University
