PROVIDENCE – The General Assembly today approved legislation (2022-H 7164A) sponsored by Rep. William W. O’Brien, District 54 North Providence, which amends the Right to Read Act by extending the timetable of the legislation by two academic years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The act, passed in 2019 and also sponsored by O’Brien, requires certain licensed public school teachers to be proficient in scientific and structured literacy reading instruction. It also requires all other licensed teachers to have a cursory knowledge of scientific and structured literacy reading instruction.
