The Colorado Exceptional Children's Education Act (ECEA) details a process for identifying children who are ready for early access to kindergarten or first grade.
San Juan BOCES has an Early Access policy on file with CDE and oversees the assessment process for early access candidates. See the attached Early Access plan, and contact Nisia Patalan [email protected] for application materials.
Early Access applications for the upcoming school year are due by April 1st. No late applications will be accepted.
Early Access results in gifted identification and is not the same as early entrance, which is determined at the building/district level. Please see this document for a description of each process.
The CDE Early Access page includes more information.
