IREAD-3 (For 3rd Grade Students)
Students in 3rd grade will be taking the IREAD-3 test the week of March 18th.  House Enrolled Act 1367 (also known as Public Law 109 in 2010) requires the evaluation of reading skills for students who are in third grade beginning in the spring of 2012. This legislation was created to ensure that all students can read proficiently at the end of grade three. In response to House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1367, educators from across the state worked with the Indiana Department of Education to develop a test blueprint and to review test questions that have now become the Indiana Reading Evaluation And Determination (IREAD-3) Assessment. The intent of HEA 1367 is to ensure every student has the opportunity for future success through literacy. The results will have a positive effect on our entire state as the need for remedial education in middle and high school is reduced and dropout rates and juvenile delinquency are lowered. In addition, HEA 1367 will help Indiana develop the highly skilled workforce needed for a strong economy.

Students who do not pass the test in March will be expected to attend remediation and retake the assessment in June.  Students are expected to pass the IREAD-3 before moving to the next grade.  Some third graders who do not pass IREAD-3 can be exempted from the consequences outlined in State Board Rule. Students eligible for a Good Cause exemption include:
1. Students who have previously been retained two times prior to promotion to fourth grade.
2. Students with disabilities whose case conference committee has determined that promotion is appropriate.
3. English Learners (ELs) whose Individual Learning Plan (ILP) committee has determined that promotion is appropriate.
