The purpose of the READ data collection is to collect data needed to fulfill statutory requirements for the annual legislative report and to determine per-pupil funding for districts by taking the count of students at the end of year who have a significant reading deficiency. Districts submit records of spring assessment data for all K-3rd grade students enrolled at the time of data submission and 4-12th grade students who are included in the READ Cohort.
The 2018-2019 READ data collection opens Monday, April 1, 2019. Districts must have their READ data file and Budget Planning Survey submitted and locked by Friday, June 14, 2019. The deadline for file re-submissions is Monday, July 1, 2019.
