Online Student Mobility Reports

SB 19-129 calls for the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) to produce an annual report on the number of students who withdraw from Colorado K-12 online schools after the pupil enrollment count date. The 2022 Student Mobility in K-12 Online Schools is expected for publishing in Summer 2023.

Online Summary Reports

Previous to HB 11-1277, all online programs were required by statute to submit a report annually to CDE. The Office of Online and Blended Learning (OBL) is now required to prepare a summary report on Online Programs every five years with the next report due in 2024.
