READ Plan Working Group
READ Plan Working Group
In 2018, CDE established a READ Plan Working Group to review the creation and use of READ plans to improve their effectiveness in response to House Bill 18-1393 . The Working Group was tasked with developing recommendations regarding changes to regulations and the department's level of technical assistance and communication to local education providers.
The Working Group was comprised of educators in grades K – 3, upper grade teachers, parents, principals, district leaders, and literacy experts representing districts from across the state, including small rural/rural, urban and suburban districts. Members of the Working Group were selected through an application process in August 2018 and met bi-monthly through December 2019.
