The State Board of Education has expressed interest in understanding the implications of changes to the school and district performance frameworks. This conversation is separate from but could also connect to rulemaking changes that are required as a result of recent legislation. The Education Accountability Act of 2009 (SB09-163) holds the state, districts, and individual public schools accountable for performance; HB18-1355 modifies Colorado’s accountability law. The resources below help explain the recent legislation along with the board’s discussion topics.
