Over the past few years, reading scores for students in Texas have remained stagnant.  Student demographics have changed, and there has not been a consistent focus on the best approach to teach reading.  

To positively influence reading skill development, reading academies have returned for teachers who instruct students in kindergarten through third grade.  Targeted reading instruction is also being promoted, especially for struggling readers, through various research-based interventions.

These links will help parents understand such strategies that are being used at school that can also be used at home.
