Organizational Commitment

The Colorado Department of Education is dedicated to increasing achievement levels for all students through comprehensive programs of education reform involving three interlocking elements:

  1. High Standards for what students must know and be able to do
  2. Challenging Assessments that honestly measure whether or not students meet standards and tell citizens the truth about how well our schools serve children
  3. Rigorous Accountability Measures that tie the accreditation of school districts to high student achievement
