Update on 3rd Grade Reading Law and Early Literacy
- Parent and educator video will be available on website soon
- Currently waiting for guidelines on “what 1 year deficient looks like”
- Young 5’s are required to have an IRIP if there is a deficiency
- Students with IEP’s are not exempt from having an IRIP, an an IEP CANNOT be used as the IRIP!
**It is reasonable and appropriate for the IRIP to be delivered by the special ed teacher as part of the special ed service time.
The CEC/MAASE Rep pointed out potential funding implications as well a supplanting versus supplementing issue
Cannot submit an exemption for entire IEP population
What happens in 4th grade if good cause exemption is utilized? Remains eligible for reading interventions services designed to enable the student to achieve proficiency.
No student is exempt from the law!
