What is the READ Act?

The Colorado Reading To Ensure Academic Development Act (Colorado READAct) was passed by the Colorado Legislature during the 2012 legislative session. The READ Act repeals the Colorado Basic Literacy Act (CBLA) as of July1, 2013, keeping many of the elements of CBLA such as a focus on K-3 literacy,assessment, and individual plans for students reading below grade level. The READ Act differs from CBLA by focusing on students identified as having a significant reading deficiency, delineating requirements for parent communication, and providing funding to support intervention. Other components of the Colorado READ Act include a competitive Early Literacy Grant and a resource bank of assessments, instructional programming, and professional development. - See more at:
