The Arizona State Legislature appropriates approximately $45 million annually 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 (as amended by HB2026) required to submit a literacy plan and triannual data for review and approval by the Arizona Department of Education Move on When Reading team.
Literacy Plans for 2022-2023 are due on or before October 1st, 2022.
Literacy Assessment Data and Narratives are due on or before:
- October 1st (Window 1 opens by August 19)
- February 1st (Window 2 opens December 1)
- June 1st (Window 3 opens April 1)
Only one data window can be open at a time. Once the window closes and a new data window opens, it is no longer accessible in your ADEConnect portal should you miss a deadline.

MOWR School literacy plan guidance 2022-2023
Step-by-step guidance: (this is the first step in a multi-step process)
- Accessing the MOWR portal as the School Approver
- Entering school-level information
- Submitting a school literacy plan to district/charter LEA Approver
This school submission (even for single-site charters/districts) does not go directly to ADE. An LEA Approver will now need to review and accept each school plan prior to submitting to ADE. See the LEA section below, for the next steps.

Revising a Rejected Literacy Plan
This document is intended to provide technical guidance for revising a MOWR Literacy Plan that has been rejected by the ADE MOWR team. Plans may be rejected when information is missing, incorrect, or not reflective of Arizona statutory requirements or best practices. As a reminder, MOWR funding is released to districts/charters upon the final approval of the MOWR Literacy Plan.
