Purpose of summer reading camp

Purpose of Summer Reading Camp

The General Assembly has directed Districts and

the State Department of Education to provide

summer reading camps for students who are

substantially not demonstrating reading

proficiency at the end of the third grade.



Funding is based on the prior year’s number of

students scoring Not Met 1 on third grade

allow for two summer classes.
