The North Carolina Read to Achieve program is a part of the General Assembly’s Excellent Public Schools Act (pages 38-45), which became law in July of 2012, and applies to all North Carolina K-3 students. 

The goal of this legislation is for all students to become proficient readers by the end of third grade. Read to Achieve outlines reading requirements for elementary students and describes what schools will be doing to assist children in reaching the proficiency goal. 

Cumberland County Schools is providing resources to aid parents in better understanding the facets of the North Carolina Read to Achieve program and how it applies to their child’s education.  Read more about the North Carolina Read to Achieve Program
