K-3 Literacy Plans & Assessment Data

MOWR 2015-2016

 Move On When Reading icon - child sitting on top of a stack of books reading a bookThe Arizona State Legislature annually appropriates $40 million to elementary schools for the purpose of supporting effective reading instruction in grades K–3. To receive these additional funds, each school district and charter school is annually required to submit to the State Board of Education a literacy plan for improving the reading proficiency of their K–3 pupils. State law requires State Board of Education approval of certain plans before funds are released. Literacy plans may be submitted annually starting August 8th, and must be completed on or before October 1st via the Move On When Reading application in ADE Connect.

Note:  PDF and Word version provided.  We had many requests last year asking if the template could be saved.  In PDF form, no, but in a WORD doc, yes.  I’m including the word doc for those of you that would like to save your information, however please realize that if information is entered into the template, the formatting will change and you will need to adjust the template as needed.  I hope this extra option helps:)

Note:  At the time of creation we were waiting for technology to make wording changes in MOWR.  Instructions in MOWR should be easier to understand by next year.  Descriptions in MOWR may change slightly, but the screenshots will still help.
