Read By Grade Three

What is Public Act 306?

On October 6, 2016, Michigan adopted the third-grade reading legislation when Governor Rick Snyder signed Public Act 306 into law. Public Act 306 of 2016 (now referred to as MCL 380.1280f) requires all third-grade students not scoring proficient on the 3rd Grade state summative assessment be retained. This legislation took effect immediately and 2016-17 kindergarteners will be the first cohort of students impacted by the retention aspects of the law in 2019-20.
