READ and School Readiness

New - Crosswalk Documents for READ Interim Assessments and Teaching Strategies GOLD

The Colorado READ Act and the school readiness initiative both impact children at the kindergarten level. The Colorado Department of Education is committed to supporting kindergarten teachers with the implementation of these initiatives in order to better support all children for school success. On this page you will find resources for integrating implementation of these two important initiatives

To answer questions about how the approved interim assessments for the READ Act can inform the information in Teaching Strategies Gold, crosswalk documents have been created.
