JUNEAU- The Senate Education Committee plans to hear a bill that would require school districts to have a strategy in place for addressing reading deficiencies in students in kindergarten through third grade.

Districts under the bill authored by Sen. Gary Stevens are also to provide reachable goals for students so they can reach grade level expectations.
SB107 also lays out a system for parental involvement in deciding whether a student in kindergarten through third grade, who has significant reading deficiencies, should move on to the next grade.
