READ plans, grades 1 – 8

iReady READ Winter 1415 Spring 1415 ELL Biliteracy READ & IEPs

All guides below refer to students grades 1-8 only, and primarily using the iReady Assessment. The only exception is SWD testers, or Students with Disabilities (see below). For Kinder teachers, please use the page dedicated to Kinder READ plans.

Grades 1-3

 Grades 4 through 8

Students are to remain on their existing READ plans until they are reading at grade level based on a BOE. Therefore, many students will come to grades 4 and 5 with READ plans that need to be continued. Each academic year should have its own READ record. However, you should NOT create a READ plan for a 4th or 5th student that did not have one in the past. Please see the flowchart linked below for further details. Read_Plan_Flow_Chart_g4,5
