The Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Academic Language Therapy Association with sponsorship from the Colorado Literacy and Learning Center presents: “The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia.” We will be hosting a screening of this award winning documentary film followed by an engaging question and answer session with a panel of local dyslexia experts: professionals, teachers, administrators, special education personnel, clinicians, parents, and students.

If you are witnessing a child struggling with reading and/or spelling and are interested in learning more about dyslexia, this is the event for you. Also, it is free of charge although donations will be accepted.

Come learn more about this very common learning disability and bring your questions! Thursday, August 31st, 7 pm, Library 21C in Briargate, PPLD Colorado Springs.

On an ongoing basis, Colorado College works with Multnomah Group, an independent investment consultant, to review the investments offered through the Colorado College retirement program. As part of our ongoing review process, Multnomah Group has recommended that an investment option in our Tier 3 menu, Columbia Acorn International Z (ACINX), be removed from the investment menu and replaced with a more suitable investment option.

Columbia Acorn International has experienced relative underperformance, changes to the benchmark, and significant outflows in recent years. As such, Columbia Acorn International Z will be replaced with DFA International Small Company I (DFISX) effective on or about September 27, 2017. Any funds invested in Columbia Acorn International Z will be moved to DFA International. DFA International Small Company I focuses on providing a competitive investment solution for international small companies structured around the sources of higher expected returns, as identified by rigorous theoretical and empirical research. The total expense ratio of the replacement fund, DFA International is lower at 0.53% than Columba Acorn at 0.99%.

Participants immediately impacted by the change will receive a participant notice from TIAA.
