Success by Third Grade or Beat Third Grade Retention Florida
Florida offers parents some Good Cause Exemptions to Avoid Third Grade Retention Florida.
Other groups argue that Parents Should Opt-Out of Standardized Testing.
At 3D Learner, we choose to focus on Success by Third Grade or Sooner — as clearly the best option for every child to avoid third grade retention Florida, second grade retention or first grade retention.
We focus on helping parents to be Informed, Empowered and Proactive and to shift the focus to how they can help their child succeed
Why Success by Third Grade or Sooner Makes Sense
All the Florida Good Cause Exemptions to avoid third grade retention Florida are harder to achieve then passing the third grade reading test.
If a child does not take the third grade reading test, then they must pass one of the Good Cause Exemptions.
The key reason you want to focus on Success by Third Grade or sooner is that all the subjects are much harder if your child is reading below grade level. Too often we are seeing 3rd, 4th and 5th graders whose reading comprehension is at the first or second grade level. What is even more startling is the case of a student like Matthew;
Matthew had a 135 IQ
Matthew failed the third grade reading FSA — he had to scramble to pass one of the good cause exemptions. When his mother came to us in June we discovered that:
- Matthew learned differently — he was a visual learner, who learned best when he sees and experienced information
- Matthew skipped words and lines when reading
- Matthew lost focus when information was boring or frustrating
We were able to help Matthew to be promoted to 4th grade, with a great deal of hard work, and his mom said — “I wish I had started earlier”, Ms. Joseph, Florida
Shifting the Focus from Third Grade Retention Florida to Success by Third Grade.
At 3D Learner, we have found that when we assess a smart struggling student we discover many things
1- Reading comprehension is often the issue holding students back
2- The student is often a visual learner — who learns best when he or she sees and experiences information
3- The student has some combination of attention, eye-teaming, anxiety and/or related challenges
4- The student has often not gotten the help he or she needs to succeed
5- The burden falls on parents to make the difference
