Before the Title I meeting we will have a meeting for 3rd grade parents only. The Tennessee General Assembly passed two key pieces of legislation during the 1st Extraordinary Session of the 112th General Assembly—the Tennessee Literacy Success Act and the Tennessee Learning Loss Remediation and Student Acceleration Act—to help ensure Tennessee students could recover from the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and close gaps in students’ learning. As part of this legislation, the General Assembly updated the state’s third grade retention law T.C.A. § 49-6-3115 to ensure students receive additional supports before promotion to fourth grade.
We will discuss what this means for our 3rd grade students and give some examples of what parents can do to help at home.
