Third Grade Reading Guarantee Guidance Manual is now available!
The Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan Template for use in conjunction with the Third Grade Reading Guarantee is now available under "Teacher Resources."
The Third Grade Reading Guarantee now requires that students in kindergarten through grade three take a reading diagnostic to determine if the student is reading at grade level.
The Ohio General Assembly made changes in Senate Bill 21 to the Reading Guarantee. The Ohio Department of Education will distribute detailed guidance on these changes by the end of this month, June 2013. This document outlines the major changes made.
Recent legislation has changed the way diagnostic assessments (reading, mathematics and writing) are administered and scored. For the first time, districts/community schools will report the results of each student’s diagnostic assessments. The new Third Grade Reading Guarantee will change when and which reading diagnostic assessments are administered.
