EHJ has described its commitment to improving third grade reading scores. We know that up through third grade, children learn to read but from fourth grade on, they read to learn. We also want eight graders to be really good at algebra so they’re better prepared for high school and college courses.

The Red Wing School District actually takes our commitment considerably further. It has adopted the STAR Enterprise™ Math and Reading assessments program. These assessments are used to screen students for their reading and math achievement levels. This helps teachers pinpoint which kids need more help and attention, and predict students’ performance on the state test.
