• The Colorado Reading to Ensure Academic Development Act (READ Act) was passed by the Colorado legislature and went into effect on July 1, 2013. This law focuses on K-3 literacy development and includes requirements for assessment, individualized READ plans for students reading Significantly Below Grade Level (SBGL), and specifics around parent communication and involvement. CDE will be collecting READ Act information yearly. DPS currently supports Istation as its READ Act assessment in grades K-8 and  Reading Inventory (RI) in grades 6 – 12.  STAR Early Literacy, STAR Reader, i-Ready, and DIBELS are also approved for use within DPS.

    The Fall 2020 READ SAL training schedule is now posted.  Note that they will be done virtually. These require you to pre-register.
