Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework - Reading: LEADERSHIP


Leadership prioritizes attainment of reading goals for all students.


Leadership
  • School administrators and leadership teams work together to create a coherent plan for reading instruction.

  • School administrators and leadership teams focus on ALL students meeting or exceeding grade-level reading goals.

  • School administrators and leadership teams are knowledgeable about reading standards, assessments, and instructional programs and materials.

  • Leadership structures exist at multiple levels—principal, mentor coach, grade-level teams, department-level teams, and the School Leadership Team—to maintain the focus on all students reading at grade level or above and to establish mechanisms to support students’ reading progress.

The Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework is aligned to Response to Intervention (RTI).


The purpose of the Oregon K-12 Literacy Framework is to ensure that ALL students read at grade level or above as soon as possible after entering school, and that they continue to advance in grade-level reading skills each year across the instructional areas in grades 4-12. For students reading below grade-level, schools specify how they will provide the strongest reading instruction and interventions possible to help students read at grade level.
