First Biennial Report of the Superintendent of Public Instruction of the Territory of Colorado

For the School Years Ending September 30, 1870 and September 30, 1871 (Dated 1872)

The State Publications Library has digitized the first title in a series of biennial reports from Colorado superintendents at the state level. The library collection includes these reports from the school year ending 1871 in Territorial days to the fiscal year 1964 of statehood . A list of our holdings is available below. The reports include a section covering the status of schools across the state with county by county brief statistical tables and a submission from each local superintendent on status of the district in many of the reports, but not all of them.

While only one of the reports is digitized, the other reports are available to be read at the State Publications Library. For information on how to access Library resources, visit Information About the Library. The library staff is available to do a limited amount of research via phone, fax, email, and walk-in service.
