WATCH: What is Summer Reading Camp (SRC)?
Summer Reading Camp starts because of Section 59-155-160 of Read to Succeed Act which states "… a student must be retained in the third grade if the student fails to demonstrate reading proficiency at the end of the third grade as indicated by scoring at the lowest achievement level on the state summative reading assessment which is SC READY. This score would equate to Not Met 1.Uploaded May 11, 2023
One of the many components of Read to Succeed Act is third grade summer reading camp. Each district must identify third grade students who are not reading proficiently on grade level and provide them with the opportunity to attend a summer reading camp. During the summer reading camps students will be taught by highly qualified teachers who have experience in working with struggling readers. Students will have the opportunity to receive small group and individual instruction to work on their reading, writing, and listening skills.
Students who successfully complete Summer Reading Camp and make progress towards reading with grade level proficiency can be promoted to the fourth grade.
It is our district’s goal that every third grader becomes a proficient reader and advance on schedule to fourth grade.
