Expiration: October 1, 2025. OECM has the option to extend the Master Agreement for two (2) additional periods of up to two (2) years each.

Early Reading Screening Tools

The Early Reading Screening Tools agreement offers evidence-based English and French language early reading screening tools to provide information on the possible reading difficulties of students in Year 2 of Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2. These tools are designed to assess each foundational reading skill against a benchmark, have good psychometric properties (i.e., reliability and validity), aggregate student data, and provide immediate information so it can be used by teachers to inform instruction.

The agreements will support the provincial government’s investment of $25 million (for the 2023-24 and 2024-25 school year), to allow school boards to purchase licenses for evidence-based early reading screening tools.

The agreement was developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and with various project advisors including Dyslexia Canada, International Dyslexia Association (IDA) Ontario, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto, and the University of British Columbia.

All early reading screening tools provided in this agreement comply with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) and Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), and adhere to Ontario and Canadian privacy and security standards.

These agreements are available under two (2) categories:

  • Category A: English Language Assessment
  • Category B: French Language Assessment
