Reading Success

TDSD takes pride in a multi-faceted reading and writing program, and students continue to surpass already high expectations.  Of this year’s entering 1st graders, almost 75% were well into mid-1st grade national reading levels by the end of Kindergarten, and almost 25% were reading at end-of-1st grade levels.  The children are so excited by their skills.  This year, TDSD has invested in a new nationally recognized reading and writing curriculum for grades 3-5 which builds on the solid K-2 foundation that we have achieved and provides clear ways to measure student essays and reading comprehension against national standards.
