2020 READ Act Professional Development Process

2020 READ Act Professional Development - Districts 

As of May 6, 2020, CDE will accept applications from Colorado school districts or BOCES seeking approval of professional development plans to meet the requirements of the evidence-based training in teaching reading required by the READ Act (C.R.S.12-7-1208(6)(a)). The district professional development application is a “rolling application” and can be submitted at any time.

Each district that submits a district professional development for review is required to complete an internal review of their professional development. The internal review should be completed by a team comprised of a variety of stakeholders representing various roles within your system. This team will utilize the CDE K-3 evidence-based teacher training rubric (linked below) to score the application and materials being submitted.

This team will be required to complete the rubric and provide notes to the CDE for each rating selected for each criterion throughout the rubric.

This pre-scored rubric will be submitted to the CDE within electronic application.

Applications will be reviewed by a CDE review team in the order they are received.  CDE will make every effort to review two applications a month beginning in August 2020.

All application documents are linked below.
