Colorado PTA is pleased to announce its support of the Colorado Academic Standards as they align with the Common Core State Standards and has partnered with the Colorado Department of Education to develop parent, family, and teacher resources to help understand what those standards consist of.
Colorado PTA supports Standards-Based Education. This is based on a position taken in 1996 titled “Standards-Based Education (PS-1996)” which states that “The Colorado PTA supports standards-based education in Colorado schools as implemented in House Bill 93-1313, focusing on standards for what students should learn in academic subjects, measurements of their progress in meeting the standards, and changes in curriculum to help them meet the standards.”
