The reading demands of the 21st century require our students to acquire high levels of literacy skill to be successful in the future. Dublin City Schools engages all students in a comprehensive literacy program starting in our early childhood classrooms and continuing to graduation.
Successful reading requires a network of processing systems that work simultaneously resulting in accurate decoding and comprehension.
The Dublin City Schools Language Arts Program emphasizes the importance of early reading intervention support by offering appropriate experiences for identified students in addition to a strong literacy based classroom environment.
Response to Intervention is a process of helping students become successful through the identification of specific interventions and monitoring the effectiveness of these interventions.
The State of Ohio passed Senate Bill 316 which requires actions for elementary schools regarding the "Third Grade Reading Guarantee." Districts are required to administer assessments in order to evaluate student performance, notify parents and develop progress plans in partnership with parents.
Please contact your child's elementary principal for more information regarding this initiative.
