What does Jasmine want you to know?
The COVID-19 pandemic put our children behind academically due to the mental toll on families and the continuous virtual learning environments. We know that children are learning to read before third grade, but after third grade, they are reading to learn. Over 70% of our third graders in SCCPSS are not (grade level) proficient in reading. We must make changes; our children's futures depend on it.
