Public Feedback Tour Resumes Tonight In Grand Junction And Next Week In Greeley And Pueblo; Final Phase Of State Assessment System Revision Continues
The Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado Department of Higher Education will wrap up a public feedback tour to solicit input on the draft recommendations for Colorado’s new assessment system.
The meetings will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Educators, students, parents, business and community members and interested citizens are invited to the meeting. There are only three meetings left on the tour, including:
Thursday, Nov. 4, Mesa State College Center, 1455 North 12th Street, Grand Junction
Monday, Nov. 8, University of Northern Colorado, Kepner Building – Room 2030, 800 17th Street, Greeley

In addition to the public meetings, an online survey for Coloradans to provide feedback on the assessment design proposal will be available from Oct. 25 – Nov. 9 at www.cde.state.co.us/ASMTRev/publictour.htm.
The objective of the tour is to solicit feedback from the field about the new assessment system design. Feedback from the public will ensure the new design reflects what Coloradans want and value in the next generation of assessments.
The reactions from across the state will be used to shape recommendations of the new assessment design that will be presented to the Colorado State Board of Education and Commission on Higher Education.
No RSVP is necessary and questions may be directed to Emmy Glancy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-866-6118.
