CCS reaches out to parents of third graders to help struggling readers
District to host Family Literacy Academy to equip parents with skills to help third graders
With more than fifty-percent of Columbus City Schools (CCS) third graders not passing the reading portion of the fall 2013 Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA), CCS has recently taken several steps to help struggling third-grade students improve their reading skills in time for the spring assessments.
The Family Literacy Academy is specifically designed to help parents of third graders further support their children’s reading improvement efforts.
Parents will be provided with practical tips and strategies from CCS literacy coaches and teachers in four workshops. The program also includes a food and community resource fair, where parents can get snacks, door prizes, gift bags – and a take-home book for every third grader. Translators and multi-lingual volunteers will also be available for non-English-speaking families.
