MiRead - Michigan's Early Literacy Portal

  • Easily identify students who may need literacy support

  • Quickly create Individualized Reading Improvement Plans (IRIP)

  • Meet requirements of Michigan’s 3rd grade reading law

  • Provide access to prior IRIPs when students change districts

  • Promote best practices and Literacy Essentials

Currently MiRead is in the piloting phase. MiRead is projected to be available to school districts by Fall 2019.

Introducing MiRead

MiRead will initially focus on supporting school efforts in managing the 3rd grade reading law and IRIP process.  However, MiRead is a long-term project designed as comprehensive literacy portal, that will grow to support students, parents, teachers, coaches, administrators, ISDs, and the entire state with increasingly comprehensive supports, intelligent tools, and leverage the ongoing work of literacy groups around Michigan.

A dozen districts will be in the ‘alpha” pilot this fall, with up to 60 being a part of the ‘beta’ pilot around the start of the year.  The goal is to bring this system to scale statewide for the fall of 2019.

MiRead is 'powered-by' the Michigan DataHub as a sole source of data.  Schools using the system will be connecting both their student information system and their early literacy assessment(s).

This collaborative project, developed for schools by schools, includes support from partners including, but not limited to, the Michigan Collaboration Hub (MiCH), Michigan DataHub, Michigan Elementary and Middle School Principals Association (MEMSPA), Michigan Literacy Data Workgroup, Intermediate School Districts English Language Arts Leaders Network, Michigan's Educational Technology Leaders (METL), The Michigan Department of Education (MDE), and others.

As a project created and maintained by the educational community, collaborative support and partnership is essential.  To get a taste of all this tool will offer, please check out these images from our clickable wireframes.
