Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee is designed to identify students from kindergarten through grade 3 that are behind in reading. Schools will provide help and support to make sure students are on track for reading success by the end of third grade.
About the Third Grade Reading Guarantee
Ohio's Third Grade Guarantee ensures that every struggling reader gets the support he or she needs to be able to learn and achieve.
How it Works
In kindergarten through grade three, schools will evaluate all children to determine if they are reading as well as they should be. If a child appears to be falling behind in reading, the school will immediately start a reading improvement and monitoring plan.
Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan (RIMP) - This plan will address each student's unique reading problems. Schools will monitor the plan to make sure the student's reading is improving.
Schools will work closely with parents to help create a remedy and for parents to be able to support the plan.
