3rd Grade Retention is a controversial tool supported by Conservatives, led by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
Research has found that of 22 stressful situations, students found grade retention the 3rd most stressful life event after Loss of a Parent and going Blind. At 3D Learner, we shift the focus from 3rd Grade Retention to Success by 3rd Grade.
We know who is at risk, often by 1st grade, almost always by 2nd grade and always by the summer before 3rd grade.
This impacts students in public, private and charter schools with the new Florida State Standards — Florida’s new name for the Common Core Standards.
3rd Grade Retention is a real risk for students in Public and Charter Schools, where the replacement for the 3rd Grade Reading FCAT, also known as the 3rd Grade FCAT, will be much harder. We project that 25 to 30% of the 3rd graders will fail the 3rd Grade FCAT Replacement test with a score that will bring 3rd Grade Retention into play.
We have written a short, informative and empowering book “Success by 3rd Grade“. We focus on what parents and grandparents can do to make the difference.
Rather than focus on School Choice (i.e.Public, Charter, Private or Homeschooling), we focus on how your child learns best and what issues might be holding your child back. With the likely challenges being attention, visual tracking, working memory and processing speed challenges.
We would like to offer you a no cost copy of “Success by 3rd Grade“, an online assessment and a debrief, that are designed to provide you with the information, mindset and resources you need to help your child to success and to shift your focus from 3rd Grade Retention to focusing on Success by 3rd Grade.
