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


Featured Items

  • The District Accountability Handbook provides an overview of accountability requirements for districts and schools.
  • The Priority Improvement and Turnaround Supplement (in the process of being updated) is an additional resource for Priority Improvement and Turnaround districts and schools. This supplemental handbook is intended to build upon the information included in the CDE District Accountability Handbook.
