Overall numbers:

 

  • If students are not on grade level reading by the end of third grade, research show that they will likely NOT graduate from High School.

  • Prison expansion is based off of 3rd graders reading level.  For example, if there is a  high percentage of 3rd graders not on reading level then they will plan to build more prisons

 

At Decker: 

 

  • Decker Elementary, the school that APH has chosen to support, is the lowest preforming elementary school in central Texas.

  • At Decker, percentage of economically disadvantaged students is in the very high 90's.

     

     

 

 

By volunteering 30 minutes a week to read to a student, you can help solve one of the largest problems in the Greater Austin area – school dropout rates. Research shows that children not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out of school. Join the movement to change this trend and demonstrate Christ to our community by becoming a literacy partner or mentor in your neighborhood school.
