Third Grade Reading Guarantee
In the 2011-12 school year, the Ohio Department of Education adopted the Third Grade Reading Guarantee. All elementary schools in Westerville comply with this legislation by:
- Administering a reading diagnostic assessment to all students in Kindergarten and in Grades 1-3;
- Identifying students who are NOT ON TRACK to be reading on grade-level by the end of the school year; and
- Providing intense remediation services to students who are NOT ON TRACK to be reading on grade level by the end of the year.
