The ability to read is the foundation of learning. Research shows that children who are not reading at a third grade level by the end of grade three will likely have trouble learning in all classroom subjects in higher grades. Ohio's Third Grade Guarantee was developed to help ensure that every struggling reader gets the support he or she needs to be able to learn and achieve.

In kindergarten through grade three, Bellefontaine City Schools will evaluate all children to determine if they are reading as well as they should be. If a child appears to be falling behind in reading, we will immediately start a reading improvement plan that will address the student's unique reading problems. BCS will then monitor the plan to make sure the student's reading is improving. We would like to work closely with parents to help create a remedy and will provide resources to parents to be able to support the plan.
