Reading offices at OSPI provide guidance for the development and implementation of Washington learning standards and oversee assessments required by federal and state laws and regulations.

Learning Standards
The Reading Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs) and Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) describe what students should know and be able to do.

The state assessments are designed to help schools and districts determine whether students have met the reading learning standards.

Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts
OSPI and its partners are in a four-phase implementation strategy for the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts.

Response to Intervention
Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and to reduce behavior problems. RTI is funded by the State Personnel Development Grant.

Washington state recognizes dyslexia as a specific learning disability.

Reading Systems Professional Learning Resource Guide
The purpose of the Reading Systems Professional Learning Guide is to provide Washington's school districts with actionable steps, professional development, and support to build, implement, and enhance a comprehensive PK-12 Reading System.
