Lawmakers Seek to Remove Third-grade Reading Guarantee

The guarantee has been in place since 2012

Lawmakers convened on Tuesday evening to hear proponent testimony for House Bill 117, which proposes to remove Ohio's third grade reading guarantee.

As it stands, the guarantee mandates third-grade students must attain a score of at least 685 on their reading test in order to progress to fourth grade.

According to the Ohio Department of Education, approximately 1 percent of third-grade students failed to meet the required threshold during the 2021-22 academic year.
