Elat Application 2019

ELAT Application Information for the 2019-2020 School Year:

CDE is accepting applications for the ELAT Project from both new and renewal applicants for the 2019-2020 school year. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available licenses, prioritization will occur pursuant to C.R.S. 22-2-14.

  1. First preference will be given to LEAs renewing their participation from the 2017-2018 school year; then new LEA applicants will be accepted.
  2. Should there need to be a selection process for new LEAs, it will be based on highest percentages of kindergarten and first-, second-, and third-grade students who are below grade level expectations in reading; and LEAs with the highest percentages of schools that are eligible to receive money under Title I of the federal “Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965”, 20 U.S.C. sec 6301 et seq.
