OSPI Closed Today, July 13

Due to the ongoing fight to reduce the impacts of COVID-19, the budget impacts of the pandemic, and the recent directive by Governor Inslee to reduce employee work hours as a cost savings measure, OSPI is closed and all staff are on mandatory furlough today. Employees will respond to inquiries as quickly as possible when the agency reopens on July 14.

See OSPI’s COVID-19 guidance and resources for educators, students, and families.

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.
