Move On When Reading for Teachers

If a student is retained, the school district governing board or the governing board of the charter school shall offer at least one of the following intervention and remedial strategies developed by the state board of education. These include:

  • A requirement that the pupil be assigned to a different teacher for reading instruction
  • Summer school reading instruction
  • In the next academic year, intensive reading instruction that occurs before, during or after the regular school day, or any combination of before, during and after the regular school day
  • Online reading instruction

This law will ensure students receive the instruction they need to develop their skills in reading. It will reduce the need for remedial education in later grades. Research shows us that students who cannot read are more likely to drop out of school. This intensive instruction helps prevent future school failure. Ensuring every student becomes a reader will contribute to Arizona’s economy by developing a skilled workforce and individuals who are prepared for higher education.
