District and School Performance Framework

Colorado READ Act


The Colorado Reading To Ensure Academic Development Act (Colorado READ Act) was passed by the Colorado Legislature during the 2012 legislative session.  The READ Act repeals the Colorado Basic Literacy Act (CBLA) as of July 1, 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.

School Demographic Overview 

To support public districts and schools in ensuring K-12 students are prepared for college and postsecondary success, the Colorado Department of Education has developed District and School Performance Frameworks (DPF and SPF). These frameworks help track district and school attainment of targets for student achievement, growth and postsecondary preparedness. The information is used to guide the development of District​ and School Unified Improvement Plans (UIP) which meet requirements of both State and Federal accountability statutes. 

​Additional information can be found at the CDE's Sch​​ool Performance Frameworks webpage.

Colorado Growth Model

The Colorado Growth Model is both a statistical model to calculate each student's progress on state assessments and a tool for displaying student, school, and district results to educators and to the public. (from CDE's website)
