The Colorado Department of Education is offering a series of training sessions across the state designed to support implementation of the READ Act (HB 12-1238). The training sessions are designed for teachers and instructional leaders focused on (1) understanding components of the READ Act, (2) identifying a significant reading deficiency, (3) developing effective READ plans, and (4) submitting READ data to the Department. Information about the opportunity to participate in a state sponsored license for the DIBELS Next System will also be provided. All trainings will be conducted from 4:30 to 7:00 pm. Specific meeting locations can be found on the READ web page: http://www.cde.state.co.us/coloradoliteracy/ReadAct/index.asp.
