Instructional Standards and Adaptations for Students with a Disability


Extended Evidence Outcomes - Review and Revision Committee

As part of the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) review and revision process, the Extended Evidence Outcomes (EEO) will be updated to align to the 2020 Colorado Academic Standards. To accomplish this important work, the Colorado Department of Education will be forming a Review and Revision Committee for the (a) mathematics; (b) reading, writing and communicating; (c) science; and (d) social studies content areas.  A chair or co-chair will be selected from the membership of each committee.

The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) is committed to conducting an open and transparent standards review and revision process by engaging diverse stakeholders from across the state. Our review and revision work will require P-12 experts in the stated content areas and/or experts in the specialized instruction of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities.  We are requesting your assistance, please consider applying for this important work.
