Ohio's Third Grade Reading

Guarantee 2021-2022

The Third Grade Reading Guarantee has changed for the 2021-2022 school year. According to ORC 3301.163, no school district , community schools, STEM school or chartered school can retain a third grader solely due to the student's reading. The parent or guardian, principal and reading teacher must agree that the student is not ready for fourth grade. Schools must notify the parent of each student who scored below 683 o the spring's Ohio State Test and describe the remediation plan to improve the student's reading.  

How Will You Know if Your Child is on Track?

The school will assess your child to find out his/her reading level. If your child is not on track, the school will give your child a reading plan that should help the child improve his/her reading. It is important for you to read the information provided by the school about your child's reading performance in grades K-3. Do not be alarmed if your child is on a RIMP. This plan will get them additional support in the area of reading.

How Can I Help?

You can help by reading to your child daily and making sure that he/she reads for at least 30 minutes each day outside of school. You can also help by making sure that your child has mastered the high frequency words. High frequency words are the foundation of oral and written communication. These words must be memorized because many of them cannot be sounded out phonetically. Also be sure to have your learner pay attention to text features (graphs, diagrams, charts, maps, timelines, table of content) when reading as these features assist with comprehension. Last but not least, have your learners use text evidence to answer questions.
