Recommended Literacy Screening Tools

The Dyslexia Advisory Council with the full support of Superintendent Chris Reykdal are recommending the following literacy screening tools for students in grades K-2 to identify students “who display indications of, or areas associated with, dyslexia” (RCW 28A.320.260 and RCW 28A.300.700).

School districts who begin using the literacy screening tools in school year 2019-20 or school year 2020-21, will be considered early adopters. All Washington school districts are required to begin implementation of RCW 28A.320.260 statute in school year 2021-22.
