Ontario Local Schools

Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment

Curriculum Adoption:
Under ORC 3313.6028(C), beginning in the 2024-2025 school year, districts and community schools must use core curriculum in English language arts and reading intervention materials from the lists established by the Department. Districts and community schools may begin using or implementing materials from the lists at any time during the 2024-2025 school year. In keeping with the requirements of this law Ontario Local Schools reviewed materials from the states approved list for consideration of adoption. 

After completing that process Ontario Local Schools are specifically considering the adoption of Wonders (which is approved by the state of Ohio) as our Core Reading program. 

If anyone would like to provide input regarding this possible adoption please contact Mike Ream at [email protected] prior to July 1st, 2024.
