The Colorado READ Act requires districts to report specific student, school, and district level data to CDE to determine and report on the important milestones in implementing key provisions of S.B. 19-199. The information provided in these reports is intended to assist the department, the state board of education, the governor, and the public in monitoring the implementation of and identifying the results achieved in implementing the Colorado READ Act.
Districts must annually report the READ Act administered interim and diagnostic assessments along with the core, supplemental, and intervention instructional literacy programs for grades K-3 for each school operated by the LEP (including charter schools). This collection window is open annually from April through June.
Districts must annually report the information necessary to determine the prevalence of SRDs among students in grades K-3. This data determines the per-pupil funding for districts by dividing the amount of money available by the total number of K-3 students identified has having an SRD in the preceding budget year. District must also report whether or not students in grades 4-12 remain on a READ plan.
Districts must annually ensure and report that all K-3 teachers who provide literacy instruction to students in grades K-3 have completed evidence-based training in teaching reading. Using the Data Pipeline, local education providers are required to report the READ Act teacher training completion status of K-3 teachers who provide literacy instruction to students in grades K-3.
