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
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.
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.
