Colorado Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11, 2018 during National Teacher Appreciation Week! CDE invites you to participate and give thanks to Colorado's deserving teachers.

During this week, we invite you to share a post, image or video with a sign thanking a teacher on any social media site using the hashtag #ThankATeacherCO. Teachers work so hard to nurture Colorado's children, let's thank them for all they do! Tell us why you appreciate teachers or give a shout out to your favorite teacher. Tag a friend and invite them to also give thanks.

2018 State Tests

This spring third- through eighth-graders in Colorado will take the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) tests that are aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards. Colorado's ninth- and 10th-graders will take the PSAT and 11th-graders will take the SAT. It will be the first time Colorado ninth-graders will be taking the PSAT. The state-level results for these tests are expected to be made available in August. Individual student reports will be available to districts in July. In addition, schools and districts are expected to receive their preliminary accountability reports or School and District Performance Frameworks in late August. Communications materials provided on this webpage can help parents better understand the statewide assessments and how they can continue to support their student's academic success.
