Nevada K.I.D.S. Read is Nevada's Read By Grade 3 (RBG3) Program that is aimed at sustaining the dreams of its youngest learners from kindergarten through 3rd grade.
Keeping Individual Dreams Strong
In 2015, Nevada passed a statute (SB391) known as Nevada's Read By Grade 3 Act. This law provides effective early interventions for all K-3 students who are struggling in reading. EKA uses the state mandated NWEA - MAP Reading Growth Assessment to determine which students are at risk of retention due to reading deficits. Parents are notified and Intensive Instruction Plans are created for those students identified as needing extra supports. These students are then given additional intensive reading instruction in the form of small groups.
Additionally, students are given online accounts for reading programs funded by EKA that can be accessed by most devices both at school and home. All parents/guardians of our Read By Grade 3 students are invited to attend a literacy event with their students in February to learn reading games and strategies to use at home.
