**There is one additional consideration for this year in terms of kindergarten students through a provision in HB15-1323. First, we would encourage districts to continue with best practice by benchmarking and providing support early in the year, the first 30 days. If, however, you choose to you may use up to 60 days for initial benchmarking of kindergarten students. By falling in this time frame or the earlier time frame of 30 days your READ assessment may be used for the literacy component of your readiness assessment.
