The Office of Standards and Instructional Support consists of content specialists with expertise in the 10 content areas within the Colorado Academic Standards. This team promotes post-secondary and workforce readiness through technical assistance and guidance, both internally and externally, related to standards implementation and instructional support. As part of our continuing efforts to provide Colorado educators with support tools for the implementation of the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS), these webpages pages are intended to be user-friendly and easy to navigate. The navigation buttons on the left hand side of this page provide access to standards, standards-based projects, and to individual content-specific standards support.
Each of the content-specific pages (dedicated to the implementation of all ten areas of the Colorado Academic Standards) has unique instructional resources, professional development opportunities, and connections to community partners across Colorado.
Keep checking these webpages as we explore options for increasing their supportive capacity and as we seek more opportunities for the co-creation of standards-based resources with Colorado’s educators.
To request professional development support by one of our team members, please fill out the request form (less than 10 minutes to submit).
Please note, we get many requests throughout the school-year and will do our best to meet district/school needs. This link submission process is the best way to ensure your request is met with due diligence and timely responsiveness.
As always, we strive to ensure that visitors find value in their (re)visits to these pages; that their content will consistently represent relevant, usable, and timely information/materials. Please let us know how we are doing!
