Universal Dyslexia Screening
The Georgia Department of Education will require all students grades K-3 to be screened for characteristics of dyslexia beginning in the 2024-25 school year.
CCSD began preparations in the fall of 2022 to implement universal screening in advance of this date, as we recognize the importance of early reading success. Our district continues to utilize iReady diagnostic results as a universal screening measure and will also utilize these results to identify any potential characteristics of dyslexia. If students are identified as needing additional dyslexia screening after the iReady diagnostic is administered, parents will be contacted.
Here are some resources for families to take advantage of:
- GA DOE Video Series
- GA DOE Dyslexia Handbook (English)
- iReady Family Center with Diagnostic Screening Information
