Florida's Read-at-Home Plan

Resources to help parents with the Read-at-home plan for K-3 struggling readers
Parents:  Did you know?

A read-at-home plan is required to be provided to parents of any K-3 student who has been identified with a substantial deficiency in reading.  The Florida Department of Education has compiled resources that each school district must include in a read-at-home plan provided to the parent of a student who is identified as having a substantial reading deficiency.  A read-at-home plan includes information and resources connected to the essential components of reading:  oral language, phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.  These resources are available in an electronic format that is easily accessible online, and a hardcopy of such resources must be provided by the school upon parent request. 

Resources are included in the areas of:

  • Parent Guides for English Language Arts Standards
  • Supporting Reading at Home
  • New Worlds Reading Initiative
  • Overview of Assessment Types
  • Statewide English Language Arts Assessments
  • Supports for Parental Involvement (including Dispute Resolution Systems)
  • Evaluating and Identifying a Student for Exceptional Student Education
  • Characteristics of  Specific Learning Disability, including:
    • Dyslexia
    • Dysgraphia
    • Dyscalculia
