Colorado Common Core website

Colorado Common Core State Standards were adopted in August 2010. In December 2010, Colorado Department of Education released the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) for Mathematics and Reading, Writing and Communicating incorporating the entire CCSS while maintaining the unique aspects of the Colorado Academic Standards. Schools were expected to fully adopt the standards by 2013 and are scheduled to be reviewed every 6 years.

Assessment Information:

Colorado officially joined the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) but dropped participation in June of 2017.

More Information:

Colorado State's adoption of the Common Core standards includes the provision that these standards will be augmented with Colorado Academic Standards and that the changes will not equate to more than 15 percent of the total content standards in each subject.
