For students who are at risk for reading difficulties,  progress in reading and reading  related-skills should be monitored on a monthly or even weekly basis to determine whether students are making adequate progress or need additional support. Because  available screening measures, especially in kindergarten and grade 1, are imperfect, schools are encouraged to conduct a second screening mid-year."
