Colorado Literacy Framework

The Colorado Literacy Framework issues from the mission of CDE to "provide all Colorado children equal access to quality, thorough, uniform, well-rounded educational opportunities in a safe, civil environment” and the vision that “all children in Colorado will become educated and productive citizens.”
