Under Ohio’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee, a student’s third grade year can be the most pivotal. Yet schools tell us that parents of struggling readers often don’t realize that. The Ohio Department of Education now offers a video that schools can use to help families understand the critical importance of monitoring their struggling readers’ progress in third grade. The video also suggests how family members can support a child’s reading at home. Download the 30-second video for parent-teacher conferences as well as posting on your district website.
