• Districts are required to develop a Local Literacy Plan to ensure that all students are reading well by no later than the end of third grade. This plan addresses the 3rd grade reading proficiency objective of districts’ World’s Best Workforce plans (Minn. Stat. § 120B.11). This collection of pages provides guidance, resources, and self-assessment checklists to assist efforts to understand and meet the demands of early reading intervention and the requirements of “Reading Well by Third Grade” (Minn. Stat. § 120B.12).
