Colorado Academic Standards Review and Revision

Colorado Academic Standards: All Students, All Standards


State Board review of standards recommendations

The State Board of Education heard final recommendations from the standards review and revision committees through its June meeting. The schedule for presentations and approval of revisions is listed below and was updated at the conclusion of each board meeting.

Each committee's final recommendations are linked below by content area.

Districts will have two years to review and revise their local standards as needed with implementation scheduled for the 2020-21 school year.

CDE cautions districts from revising local standards and curriculum until final approval of revisions by the State Board of Education.  As the Board approves revisions, districts may begin their process to review and revise their local standards and curriculum. The department anticipates that final, copy edited versions of approved standards as well as an online standards system will be available by early August.

The Board voted on all proposed revisions by July 1, 2018 in alignment with state law.
