3rd grade reading guarantee
Why third grade reading is so important
The Third Grade Reading Guarantee in Ohio is a program that recognizes students who are falling behind in their reading from kindergarten to third grade. Schools will provide assistance and support to ensure that children are on track to excel in reading by the third grade.
The ability to learn is the pillar of academic achievement. Children who do not read at a third-grade level by the end of third grade are more likely to fail in all subjects in higher grades, according to research.
Both children in kindergarten through third grade will be evaluated to see whether they are reading as well as they should be. If a student seems to be falling behind in reading, the school will implement a reading intervention plan right away.
To progress to the fourth grade, students must achieve a minimum score on the state reading exam, with the exception of students with special circumstances. The minimum score for advancement in 2016-2017 is 700. This score must be collected during the state reading test’s fall or spring administration.

Ohio’s third grade reading guarantee overview (short
On Friday, June 19, 2020, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed Ohio House Bill 164 (H.B. 164), also known as the Ohio Student Religious Liberties Act of 2019. H.B. 164, which was introduced in response to the coronavirus pandemic, goes beyond its religious requirements to resolve a number of concerns that Ohio school districts are grappling with as they prepare to reopen for the 2020-2021 school year. Recognizing the effect of school closures on student instruction and evaluation data, Ohio’s legislature has introduced the following exemptions and prohibitions to the state’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee provisions:
The relief provided by H.B. 164 is only for the 2020-2021 school year. When school districts take advantage of these choices for flexibility, it’s important that all student retention and instructional decisions are made with the student in mind. Decisions should be based on evidence and progress against the goal of delivering high-quality instruction to students who are competent in reading.
Ohio’s third-grade-reading guarantee – what it means for
“Under newly enacted legislation for the 2020-2021 school year (Section 18 of House Bill 164 of the 133rd General Assembly), no district, community school, STEM school, or chartered nonpublic school shall retain a student in the third grade who does not meet the promotion score of 683 on Ohio’s State Test for grade 3 English,” according to the Ohio Department of Education’s Reset, Restart Education plan. Unless retained, students who are in third grade for the 2020-2021 school year and will be enrolling in fourth grade for the 2021-2022 school year are subject to this provision.”
A. During the 2012-13 academic year, many of the provisions of S.B. 316 went into effect, and the retention of third-grade students will begin in the 2013-14 school year.
The Third Grade Reading Guarantee promotion score for the 2019-2020 school year is 683. At the end of the year, any student with a scaled score of 683 or higher in English language arts will be qualified for promotion.
