What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of fourth grade students that are proficient or above in reading.
Percentages are based on students that passed the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test in reading with a satisfactory score or higher.
Why this is important: 
The ability to read proficiently is a fundamental skill that affects the learning experiences and school performance of children and adolescents. Students who are competent readers, as measured by their performance on reading tests, are more likely to perform well in other subjects, such as math and science. Reading achievement also predicts one's likelihood of graduating from high school and attending college.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the Texas state value.
Locale Details:
Texas Education Agency (TEA) Region 10 includes districts from Collin, Dallas, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Kaufman, Hunt, Rockwall, and Van Zandt counties.
