Third grade reading scores are slightly lower in the area, though South Bend has seen some improvement.

The new IREAD 2022 results have been released, in advance of the 2022-2023 school year.

WSBT reports that 1 in 5 Hoosier 3rd graders does not show reading proficiency. Statewide, just under 82% of students passed — an increase of less than half a percentage from last year. South Bend and LaPorte saw improvements, but most districts did worse.

PHM had the highest ranking locally at 88.2%. The South Bend Community School Corporation, despite a 4.5% increase, ranked lowest at 58%.

The Indiana Department of Education has set aside $150 million for the Student Learning Recovery Grant Program to try and boost numbers around the state.
