The Colorado READ Act was passed by Colorado Legislature during the 2012 legislative session. The READ Act stands for Reading to Ensure Academic Development Act and focuses on K-3 literacy, assessment, and individual plans for students who are identified as having a significant reading deficiency. The READ Act puts requirements and funding in place to support parent communication, intervention support, instructional programming, and professional development.

Students who are identified as having a significant reading deficiency, based on literacy screening and diagnostic evaluations, given to all students, will have an individual READ Plan created for them.

The purpose of READ Plans is to provide targeted, individualized intervention and supports in order to help ensure students are able to obtain the grade level skills they need to be proficient readers within an appropriate timeline.

READ Plans are created in collaboration with parents, students, classroom teachers, and support and intervention providers.
