Reading Sufficiency provides a foundation for student academic success.
 

Purpose

The purpose of the Reading Sufficiency Act (RSA) is to ensure that all Oklahoma students are reading on grade level at the end of third grade (a critical juncture when students go from learning to read to reading to learn).  RSA supports Oklahoma children in Kindergarten through third grade.

For the Student

Reading sufficiency significantly reduces the possible need for remediation in middle and high school and lowers the risk of a student dropping out of school because he or she is unable to read.

How SDE Can Help

The Oklahoma State Department of Education (SDE) is assisting school districts as they work to ensure all students are able to meet third-grade reading requirements. Details are available here.
