Ohio Standards for Learning
The state of Ohio realizes the need to enhance rigor and college and career readiness for all subject areas. For this reason, Ohio has also developed new standards in the areas of science, social studies, music, visual arts, and world languages. More information can be found at the Ohio Department of Education website.
In June 2012, Ohio Legislature passed Senate Bill 316. This new law now requires public school districts to administer a reading diagnostic assessment to all students in grades K-3 by September 30th of each year. This reading diagnostic is designed to determine if a student has the skills and abilities necessary to meet end-of-the-year expectations. The Euclid City Schools will be utilizing Aimsweb reading assessment to benchmark students.
Students who are “Not on Track” based on the fall Aimsweb assessment will also be provided with a Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan. The plan will specify services that will be provided to your student and a description of proposed supplemental instructional services.
Per Senate Bill 316, students in grades K-3 who are identified as “not on track” in the area of reading by failing to attain the appropriate level of reading competency by the end of grade three will be retained. For this school year, students will need to score a 392 on either their fall or spring 3rd grade reading OAA. We will put various supports in place for students in an effort to provide all students with the necessary tools to attain this score. We also strongly encourage you to read with your child each day.
More information on the 3rd-grade reading guarantee can be found on the ODE website.
