The McKnight Foundation and its partners are working to increase the percentage of successful 3rd-grade readers — especially among underserved populations such as dual-language learners, students experiencing poverty, and students of color. This collection of briefs describes efforts to develop PReK-3 assessment systems, PreK-3 alignment, and efforts to support dual language learners. Each brief describes the work in McKnight’s grantee school sites, highlighting the benefits and challenges while offering recommendations for expanding and improving efforts.
