Universal Literacy & Move on When Reading

Arizona’s Move On When Reading policy is designed to provide students with evidence-based, effective reading instruction in kindergarten through third grade in order to position them for success as they progress through school, college, and career. The legislation in A.R.S §15-701, A.R.S §15-704, and A.R.S §15-211 (as amended by HB2026) explains the requirements for pupil promotion, early literacy instruction, and accountability for student achievement in reading.

It is imperative to keep parents and guardians informed of the Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS) for each school, the legislative requirements in Arizona that affect K-3 students’ education, and the ever-important reading process for all K-3 students. Two parent notifications are required as part of the Arizona Department of Education’s screening plan and the Move on When Reading requirements.
