2020 Colorado Academic Standards

The Colorado Academic Standards form the foundation of Colorado’s public education system by defining what every graduate of a public school in Colorado should know, understand and be able to do. SB 08-212 has a provision that requires the regular review and revision of Colorado Academic Standards every six years. The most recent revision is set to be implemented beginning in 2020.


We are inviting all stakeholders, including parents, staff and community members, to take an active role in the process by reviewing the new standards and submitting comments to the Board of Education.


The standards are on display at the Administration Building, 7350 N. Broadway, Denver, 80221.
