Caledonia Community Schools is committed to providing an educational system that ensures all students are successful in school and life.  We know that being a good reader is critical to this success.  In 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed the Third Grade Reading Law to ensure that students exit third grade reading at or above grade level.  “Cal READS!” is our district’s title for the comprehensive system of supports as required by this law.  The law requires districts to assess reading in grades Kindergarten - Third grade and provide intensive reading instruction for any students that are not at the expected reading level.  Caledonia uses a Multi-Tiered System of Supports framework to meet individual student needs and make certain that our students are fluent readers.  

The law also requires districts to provide written communication with parents of K-3 students with reading difficulties. Communication will include information about current services being provided, an Individualized Reading Plan (IRP) for identified students, and strategies for you to help your child at home.  Read at Home plans are shared with families directly by each school and can also be accessed via this website using the links on this page.

If you have questions regarding “Cal READS!”, please contact your child’s school or the Curriculum Office.
