Organizational Commitment

The Colorado Department of Education is dedicated to increasing achievement levels for all students through comprehensive programs of education reform involving three interlocking elements:

  1. High Standardsfor what students must know and be able to do;
  2. Challenging Assessments that honestly measure whether or not students meet standards and tell citizens the truth about how well our schools serve children; and
  3. Rigorous Accountability Measures that tie the accreditation of school districts to high student achievement.
