Third Grade Reading Guarantee Parent Roadmaps


Ohio is working hard to make sure that all young children get the basic reading skills they need to be successful in school now and in higher grades.

At the beginning of each school year, schools are checking every child in Kindergarten–Grade 3 to see if they are reading as well as they should be for their grade. If your child’s reading is not on track for the grade, he or she will receive extra reading help in school.

If you are the parent of a struggling reader in Kindergarten or Grade 1, 2, 3, or 4, the Ohio Department of Education has new Parent Roadmaps that tell you what you can expect at school and what you can do to help at home.
