Retention
Retention, which is identified as a last
resort in PL 109, requires schools to
provide students who do not pass IREAD3 with Grade 3 reading/literacy
instruction. Literacy instruction may also
include other content areas, such as
science and social studies. Methods of
organizing students for differentiated
instruction are determined locally.
