What's new this year for SICs?
The defined role of the SIC in the state's 2014 Read to Succeed Act (R2S) is to provide input on training/support for parents as part of the school’s Reading Proficiency Plan. While R2S is not technically “new,” 2018 will see first retention of third graders for not reading on grade level.
Schools and SICs can and should work together to ensure that parents are aware of this provision.
Suggested R2S goals and projects for SICs are available on the SC SIC website.
