Schools across Colorado will get an upgrade to their reading and math curriculum thanks to millions in federal COVID relief funds.
The $10 million in funds will be distributed to 42 school districts and 28 charter schools across the state for K-8 math curricula and K-3 READ Act instructional programming, according to the Colorado Department of Education. The money will help schools purchase new reading and math curricula after the pandemic significantly disrupted learning.
In El Paso County and Pueblo County, Districts 2, 11, 20, and 70 will receive a portion of the funding. District 11 in Colorado Springs said they bought a new reading curriculum when the pandemic hit, but can still use the funds for anything related to the literacy of kindergarten through third graders. Karol Gates, the curriculum director for District 11, said their new reading curriculum costs around $2 million, and materials aren't cheap.
