Reading 

K-12 Teachers who provide intensive tier 3 reading interventions, interventions to students with a reading IEP, have students who have been identified with a substantial deficiency in reading on the FSA or i-Ready, or have students in their second year of 3rd grade (core and intensive instruction) will be required to attain a reading endorsement by fall 2020.  At that time, teachers will be considered out-of-field.  Teachers are able to provide instruction to all students, but will need to work towards meeting endorsement requirements within three years by taking a minimum of two competencies per year.
