ISD hears literacy presentation

How to keep students reading at third-grade level was the focus of a recent presentation before the St. Joseph County Intermediate School District Board of Education.
Diane Talo, director of instructional leadership, and Carla Osborn, educational consultant, were the presenters. Their focus was tied to a new state law requiring that all third- grade students who do not meet grade-level reading be retained.
The law goes into effect when next school year’s kindergarten students reach third grade.
Osborn, who is on the Early Literacy Task Force, and Talo have been developing a plan for some time.
Under Osborn’s instruction and statewide training, local district literacy leaders will implement strategies with their colleagues in K- 3 classrooms.
A literacy leader from each of the nine county school districts has been chosen; the larger school districts will have several leaders.
