Progress Monitoring - Targets and Benchmarks

Pause on 2020-21 and 2021-22 State Accountability System Due to COVID-19

A second year of Accountability Pause (2021-2022) has been authorized by the Colorado legislature. The state's accountability system has been paused for 2020-21 and 2021-22. More details on the implications of a pause in accountability are available in the links below.

 

Based on the data analysis and identification of priority performance challenges, schools and districts should clarify the targets that will focus their improvement efforts for the next two school years. If the school or district already set targets in the prior year, those targets should be updated based on the most recent performance data.

Once annual performance targets are set for the next two years, districts and schools must identify interim measures, or what they will measure during the year to determine if progress is being made towards each of the annual performance targets. Both annual performance targets and interim measures should be documented in section IV: Action Plan tab in the UIP Online System.

Implementation Benchmarks Guidance Document: This document gives an overview of Implementation Benchmarks and provides guidance for how to create and use them effectively in improvement planning

The UIP Handbook Section IV: Action Plans describes Target Setting in further detail.
