Move On When Reading (MOWR)

Arizona’s Move on When Reading (MOWR) legislation places great importance on this process beginning in kindergarten to ensure all students remain on track to be reading on grade level by the end of 3rd grade. Arizona Revised Statute §15-701 states that if a student scores below the cut score on the reading portion of the 3rd-grade statewide exam, he/she will not be promoted to the 4th grade until the student makes sufficient progress in reading proficiency. It is understood that each child is unique; therefore, exemptions have been established for students to be promoted to 4th grade. Those exemptions are available at the Move on When Reading website.
