To ensure that West Virginia’s students don’t fall behind while school is out of session, the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) wants your help in encouraging children statewide to keep their academic skills sharp during the summer break through the Summer Learning Reading and Math Challenge<>.

The WVDE and West Virginia Leaders of Literacy: Campaign for Grade-Level Reading are challenging students to read every day this summer, for at least 15 to 30 minutes. Suggested summer reading goals for students based on grade levels are:

  *   K-2 students: 10 books
  *   3-5 students: 8 chapter books
  *   6-12 students: 5 fiction books and 5 non-fiction books.

Students can sign up by going to<>, and click on Submit your Summer Reading Pledge for a chance to help their school win a one year free site license to one of the following reading improvement programs: Achieve3000<> (one elementary and one middle school), Capstone Digital's myON<>, and Reading Horizons<> (one elementary and one middle school).
