Colorado READ Act Resources
The Colorado Reading to Ensure Academic Development Act, known as the Colorado READ Act, was passed by the Colorado Legislature in 2012, giving the state the guiding philosophy, structure and resources to ensure children are reading at grade-level by the time they enter fourth grade. The READ Act has since undergone various updates to help improve reading outcomes in Colorado. The Colorado READ Act is preventative in nature and focuses on early literacy programs, resources for both teachers and students, early screening, and individualized READ Plans for students. The audience-specific resources on this page are designed to assist in deepening understanding of the Colorado READ Act statute, Rules for Administration of the READ Act, and READ Act implementation in schools.
