Education - Supporting our early learners
Today's third graders are Scott County's future workforce, yet in 2015 a third of our 3rd graders were not reading at grade level. Future achievement is predictable by grade 3, and maintaining status quo has a cost.
Estimates from Annie E Casey Foundation:
Local annual public services cost per dropout: $28,000
Local annual public services cost per unprepared grad: $10,000
Annual local cost: $6,960,000 per graduating class
Ensure children are developmentally on track and prepared for educational success.
