Structured Literacy Certification Process

 STRUCTURED LITERACY CERTIFICATION process 

Certification Process 

Districts are required to establish a Structured Literacy Certification process for teachers providing instruction in kindergarten through third grade. Districts determine locally which educators will become certified through this process. The certification process must align with Ohio’s Dyslexia Guidebook.  

Certification Pathways 

Ohio law defines appropriate certification as either certification at a certified level, or higher, from a research-based structured literacy program or any other certification as recognized by a majority vote of the Ohio dyslexia committee.

This includes, but is not limited to, the following pathways recognized by a majority vote of the Ohio dyslexia committee. This document from the Ohio Dyslexia Committee provides more information on these pathways.
