Foundations of Reading Survey


This webpage provides information for district administrators and teachers about the implementation and administration of the reading survey scheduled for December 1, 2020, through May 14, 2021.

Why is the survey required?

Section 10-145r of the Connecticut General Statutes, Survey on Reading Instruction, requires that commencing in the 2014-15 school year, and biennially thereafter, any teacher during the school year who holds an Elementary Education or Integrated Early Childhood N-3 endorsement teaching in Grades K, 1, 2, and 3 will be required to complete the survey.

Who must take it?

Any teacher holding a certificate endorsed in one of the following areas and serving in a position requiring such an endorsement and teaching in Grades Kindergarten, 1, 2 or 3 must complete the survey during the 2020-21 school year.

  • Integrated Early Childhood/Elementary Education N-3 and Special Education N-K (#113)
  • Elementary education (#001, 002, 003, 004, 005, 008, 013, or 305)
  • Bilingual elementary education (#009, 902)

Teachers who hold more than one certification endorsement in addition to the above and are not serving under the above endorsements will not be required to complete the survey.

District liaisons will receive from the Connecticut Department of Education a list of teachers who are required to complete the survey based on holding the above certification endorsements and serving in an elementary K-3 teaching assignment and grade.

How will my result be used?

Results of the survey are formative and intended to provide information to support planning of professional development at the school level. The results will not impact teacher evaluation or certification. Furthermore, the results are not subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act.
