  • 3rd Grade Reading Law

    The Ann Arbor Public Schools is committed to providing a high quality education for all students. Ensuring that students are proficient and skillful readers and writers is one of our highest district priorities. In 2016, the State of Michigan passed legislation that immediately impacts reading expectations for all students in kindergarten through third grade. This legislation became Public Act 306 and is referred to as the Third Grade Reading Law. This Third Grade Reading Law sets out standards for student achievement and guidelines to ensure students achieve grade level proficiency by the end of third grade. Below is a general overview of the elements of the Third Grade Reading law and how parents/ families can be a strong partner in this achievement.
