SB08 212 Legislative Update Report: Colorado's Achievement Plan for Kids (CAP4K) 2010 Goals and Accomplishments
Colorado Department of Education
This paper serves as the Colorado Department of Education's (CDE's) third annual update on the progress and plan for the implementation of the Colorado Achievement Plan for Kids (CAP4K). Enclosed within this report is a narrative that documents accomplishments to date with respect to key deliverables, as well as supporting appendices, including key findings and schedules. CAP4K sets forth a common purpose--readying all students for postsecondary and workforce success--and a significant step toward achieving that goal was adopting new state academic standards that are fewer, clearer and higher. A key deliverable in 2010 was the development of the new assessment system which will provide ongoing signals and measurement of students' progress toward college and career readiness. Another key deliverable was CDE's support to Colorado districts and schools with the transition toward the new standards. Leading this effort is the CDE Standards Implementation Team, led by content specialists who provide the necessary bridge from policy to practice, bringing key supports to Colorado districts, schools and teachers. In 2011 CDE will continue to support districts with standards implementation, facilitate the development of the new assessment system and establish state graduation guidelines. In addition, CAP4K calls for the Colorado Department of Education (DHE) to align higher education policies, admissions and teacher preparation programs based on the previous steps taken to create a truly aligned P-20 system. Appendices include: (1) Standards Facilitated Curriculum Presentation; (2) List of Assessment Stakeholders; (3) List of Subcommittee Members; (4) Autumn Tour Schedule; (5) Autumn Tour PPT and Summary; (6) Winter Tour Schedule; (7) Winter Tour PPT and Summary; (8) Assessment Survey Results; (9) Assessment Capacity Survey Final Report--March 2010; (10) Adopted Final Student Assessment System Attributes--Dec. 6, 2010; (11) CCHE and SBE Final Assessment Adoption--Nov. 29, 2010; and (12) Cost Study--CAP4K Interim Report--March 2010.
