The South Dakota Department of Education is kicking off a statewide reading challenge as students prepare for summer break.
Secretary of Education Dr. Melody Schopp says the Read South Dakota! Summer Reading Challenge is unique because it promotes students reading at their appropriate skill level, rather than focusing on reading a certain number of books.
Schopp says students who don't practice reading during the summer months lose skills and may start off the next school year below the level they were previously at.
