The Colorado Department of Education provided multiple avenues and opportunities for interested individuals and organizations to review plans and provide feedback as part of the ESSA plan development process. In order to ensure CDE had adequate time to review public comments and prepare a final draft for review by the State Board of Education, the Department opened windows of feedback via online surveys. Feedback on key decision points and recommendations are posted below.
Most windows were open for two weeks or more, but varied based upon the draft stage. For example, survey windows for spoke committee recommendations and decisions points may have be shorter in duration than windows for section drafts approved by the Hub Committee.
