Look for some media coverage today of the Wake County school system's use of the mCLASS:Reading 3D assessment system.
Several state legislators, including former Wake County school board chairwoman Rosa Gill, are scheduled to see a demonstration today of how mClass:Reading 3D is used in a first-grade class at Timber Drive Elementary School in Garner.
All elementary schools in the state will use mClass as a reading diagnostic system in the 2013-14 school year as part of the Excellent Public Schools Act. Wake currently has 15 schools using the software program.
The goal is to help young students improve their literacy skills.
