Third Grade Guarantee

Third Grade Guarantee

Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee is a program to identify students from kindergarten through grade three that are behind in reading.

Recent legislation strengthened the guarantee to give a greater emphasis to reading instruction and intervention in the early grades. Through this initiative, school districts and community schools will diagnose reading deficiencies in students at grades kindergarten through three.
