P-20 education innovation in Colorado

This timeline explores the key ways P-12 and higher education are working together to improve learning and success for all Colorado's students, from preschool through college graduation.

New tests for state standards

Students will take the CMAS (Colorado Measures of Academic Success) English language arts and mathematics assessments instead of TCAP.

Senate Bill 191 signed into law

Graduation guidelines OK'd

The State Board of Education approves a set of graduation guidelines that local and school districts must "meet or exceed" by 2021.

Endorsed diplomas

Two key education boards vote to approve criteria for the Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness (PWR) endorsed high school diploma.

Remediation policy revamped

The Colorado Community College System board approves a redesign of its remedial education policy to benefit busy, cash-strapped students.

Revised academic standards rolled out

The Colorado Academic Standards are the expectations of what students need to know and be able to do at the end of each grade.

Career and academic plans to be required

Educator effectiveness rolled out
