As part of the revision of the Colorado Model Content Standards the Colorado Department of Education is seeking broad input from various constituencies to better understand how stakeholders perceive the definitions of 21st Century Skills and Abilities, School Readiness, Postsecondary Readiness, and Workforce Readiness.
The Colorado Model Content Standards exist for each Core Academic Discipline: Civics, Dance, Economics & Financial Literacy, Geography, History, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Reading & Writing, Science, Theatre, Visual Arts, and World Language.
It is important that community colleges provide input to CDE on these 3/4 important considerations. Please help CDE define what skills and abilities must be included in the revision of Colorado’s Model Content Standards.
Please go to:
