Literacy Framework Schools State School Districts Leadership Professional Development Commitment Instruction Assessment Goals
The body of the Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework, described in the Executive Summary: School-level Implementation, focuses on what schools must do to promote effective reading instruction in every classroom and across all instructional areas. It is divided into six chapters, representing six components that need to be integrated in order to implement a comprehensive reading program that will improve the reading achievement of ALL students—Goals, Assessment, Instruction, Leadership, Professional Development, and Commitment.

“School Support for the Essential Skill of Reading” provides an overview of key topics within each component chapter as well as hyperlinks to specific passages where those topics are discussed. It is also a self-audit tool for schools to assess their strengths and areas for improvement as they develop a School Reading Plan.

Each part of the Framework is organized around the same six components that address what the state, districts, and schools must do to promote effective reading instruction for all students. In the Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework navigation graphic, the six components within the circle—Goals, Assessment, Instruction, Leadership, Professional Development, and Commitment—are flanked by the three levels of support without—State, District, and School.

While the school-level focus is essential, it is not sufficient. It is the state, district, and school levels working in concert that create the conditions necessary for effective reading instruction to take place in every Oregon classroom so that ALL students are able to develop the reading skills they need to do well in school, earn an Oregon Diploma, and succeed in their next steps.
