  6. Third Grade Reading OAA • In the 2012-2013 school year, for students who score below 390 on the third-grade reading OAA, districts must either: • Promote the student if the principal and student’s reading teacher agree the student is prepared academically for Grade 4; • Promote the student, but continue to provide intensive intervention services in Grade 4; or • Retain the student in the third grade

  7. Third Grade Reading OAA • In the 2013-2014 school year, all students scoring below 392 on the third-grade reading OAA must be retained, except for the following students: • Limited English proficient students; • Special education students whose IEPs exempt them; • Students who demonstrate reading competency on an alternative reading assessment approved by ODE; and • Any student who has received intensive remediation for two years and was previously retained in grades K-3.

Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan • All Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plans must be created within 60 days of when a student is designated not on-track. • Identify student’ s specific reading deficiency • Describe supplemental instruction services • Involve parents and guardians • Monitor plan’s implementation • Provide reading curriculum that assists students to read at grade level • State risk of retention in 3rd grade.

  12. Data Reporting • Districts will report reading, writing and math diagnostic scores at the end of the year through EMIS • Scores will be reported as “on track” or “not on track” • Districts will also report the intervention provided for students deemed “not on track” by Sept. 30 reading diagnostics

Educator Licensure Beginning in the 2013-2014 school year: • For students who are not on-track in grades K-3, schools must provide a classroom teacher who has either: • Passed a reading instruction test; or • Has a reading endorsement on their teaching certificate. • ODE is currently determining which test(s) may be used to meet this requirement
