By October 1 each year, North Dakota K-3 public and nonpublic elementary schools will report to NDDPI what training they have approved for individual teachers and principals and the status of implementing and completing training. If the training content, quality, or time invested falls short, schools may be asked for documentation to ensure all teachers and principals have met the law.
The report will capture information in the following areas:
- Reading curriculum and instruction,
- Professional development and training for grades K-3 teachers and principals, or demonstrated mastery of literacy topics by teachers and principals; and
- Assessment instruments to diagnose reading development and comprehension.
If you are responsible for completing the Reading Curriculum and Professional Development Report and are not seeing it on your STARS dashboard, please have the district superintendent grant you access using this help guide.
