Standards Review and Revision Public Feedback Opportunities
Second opportunity now open through November 27, 2017.
CDE is committed to facilitating an inclusive, open, and transparent review and revision process for the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS). We invite all interested educators, school and district leaders, parents, elected officials, students, faculty at institutions of higher education, education organizations, and community members to share feedback on proposed revisions to standards in all content areas.
The online standards feedback system enables all Coloradans to provide specific feedback on drafts of the proposed revisions within all content areas of the Colorado Academic Standards. This is also the first opportunity to share feedback on the proposed voluntary high school computer science standards. The feedback will be used to assist the committees in determining what additional revisions are needed prior to making recommendations before the Colorado State Board of Education.
In addition to the online system used in the first public feedback process, review and revision committees have created resources to assist your review process consisting of summaries and complete lists of the proposed revisions. The complete lists are spreadsheets that include comparisons of previous language and rationales. These resources can be accessed on the public feedback resources page.
There are two additional public feedback opportunities; surveys around the Essential Skills Guidance Resource and the Colorado English Language Proficiency resource development process to date. Visit the public feedback resources page to access these surveys.
The public feedback window will be open from Monday October 16 through November 27, 2017.
Ideas, feedback and questions can also be shared at the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Resources from the First Public Feedback Opportunity
The first online standards feedback system was open seven months for the initial feedback phase from October 2016 through April 30, 2017. This system was designed to obtain feedback on each expectation within the CAS prior to committee meetings. All public feedback received was shared with committee members and the public to inform the standards review process.
