The Ohio Department of Education created this guidance manual to help school districts, community schools, and chartered nonpublic schools understand the requirements of the Third Grade Reading Guarantee. Please note that there may be periodic updates to this guidance document as new issues arise – districts and schools should check the website frequently.
Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan Sample Template
The Ohio Department of Education developed a Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan sample template in the fall of 2013. This template has been updated to reflect the feedback received from districts and schools since its release. Districts may opt to use the template and are encouraged to modify the template to meet the needs of their students and communities. Districts are not required to utilize the Department-developed template.
