Adding Family-Friendly Content to Your School’s Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan (RIMP) Communications

Ohio Districts are now required to include in their Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan (RIMP) letters/communications to families specific aspects of literacy that the school will be focusing on with their child, based on the school’s assessments.

In our editable chart for schools, we share 5 key early literacy concepts based on the Simple View of Reading, how to talk about these concepts with families, and activities families can try at home together to support their child’s early literacy skill development. All of this content can be added to a RIMP letter or discussion with families. Families know best what works for them. Encourage families to share their own activity ideas as well!
