READ Act: Opt-Out
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.
Please note that DIBELS Next is now Acadience Reading. However, you will see them used interchangably in communications and documents on occasion.
