Diagnostic Reviews

Diagnostic Review is a service offered to school or district leaders by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). Experts from CDE visit the school or district, gather information, and craft a review document for the school or district leadership and staff to utilize for future planning.  


Benefits and Uses of a Diagnostic Review:

  • Identify specific areas of current success

  • Highlight stakeholder input

  • Review trends and performance challenges

  • Final report provided to support future action planning
