Standards and Instructional Support

Welcome

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 is committed to supporting education professionals across the state in implementing the Colorado Academic Standards for student success.The team provides guidance and expertise through technical assistance, 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.
