The Board of Education for the State of Ohio said that nearly nine of ten third-graders in the state met the new reading targets and can move onto the fourth grade after follow up testing.

Students can be held back if they don't meet the literacy goals under the state's new third grade reading guarantee. The Department of Education said more than 110,000 third graders or 88 percent of the total have earned the necessary score in testing in October or May.

The figures are up from the 63 percent who passed in October. This is how our area districts faired:
