What are the Colorado Academic Standards?

In response to the strong commitment of Colorado's populace, the Colorado General Assembly and the State Board of Education have built Colorado's education system around challenging academic standards.

Example of an Academic Standard: Kindergarten-4th Grade Civics

  • Describe the purposes of government;
  • Describe what life would be like without laws and order; and
  • Identify a constitution as a framework for a government.
