In 2014, SC implemented the Read to Succeed legislature.  Since then many programs have been added to help students be successful in their reading, such as extra in-class reading time and summer reading camps.  Up until third grade students are learning to read and after third grade they are reading to learn, making this year a crucial year.

For a simple video explanation and more details on Read to Succeed, click here.
