Summer Training Schedule for School Readiness Assessment Implementation
Mark your calendars! CDE will be hosting several regional trainings to help prepare kindergarten teachers and administrators for a smooth roll out of the components of School Readiness legislation.
As a result of attending a full-day training, participants will understand how to utilize Teaching Strategies GOLD as a primary formative assessment tool across multiple child domains as identified in legislation, create intentional observational opportunities to address a range of curricular focus areas, and learn best practices in planning for targeted and differentiated support of students in every day instructional experiences. Trainings will be valuable for those who are new to this tool, as well as those who are already familiar with it.
Trainings are scheduled from 8am-4pm, with a 1 hour lunch break (b.y.o.), and will cover the same material in each location, so you can easily attend the training that is most convenient to you. Participants will also receive a certificate for 7 contact hours of training upon completion.

Previously Recorded Webinars
This webinar was created as a preview the new Teaching Strategies GOLD Birth through 3rd grade platform before it is available to Colorado users on July 17th.
The CDE board voted in October to add assessment options to the approved list of school readiness assessment tools. Below is the introductory webinar designed to support kindergarten teachers and administrators with options for implementation in the 2015-2016 school year. It provides participants with (1) an overview of school readiness requirements within Colorado's Achievement Plan for Kids (CAP4K), (2) a review of the approved school readiness assessment tools, (3) an overview of the timeline for the application process for the 2015-2016 school year.
