At Saddle Ranch, we believe in the power of reading and its ability to unlock a world of opportunity for our students.  The READ Act, passed by Colorado legislature in 2012, focuses on early literacy development for all students.  Using a body of evidence, student's reading skills are evaluated and those who are not reading at grade level are given individual READ plans.  



READ plans support a targeted intervention plan to ensure literacy growth for all students.  SRE Staff is specifically trained in the scientifically proven instructional methods for literacy.  READ plans are closely monitored and adjusted to help student's reach their goals.  


We encourage families to stay engaged with your child's reading experiences at home.  Reading together, discussing books, and fostering a love for reading can have a profound impact on your child's development.  

Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher with any questions. We value your input and partnership!

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records by email to [email protected].
