Accountability, Performance and Support


CDE supports districts and schools through an educational system focused on ensuring all students will exit Colorado’s K-12 schools ready for postsecondary education and workforce success.

To support this goal, the Accountability and Data Analysis Unit at CDE:

  • Calculates Growth on TCAP and English language proficiency
  • Creates the School and District Performance Frameworks
  • Accredits school districts and assigns school plan type assignments
  • Reports student outcome data to the public and educators
  • Assists districts and CDE staff in using student performance data to drive decision making


  • Preliminary 2016 School and District Performance Frameworks are expected to be available to districts by the end September/early October. Update coming soon.
