Educator Preparation Standards Matrices

Below you will find a comprehensive list of all of the educator preparation standards matrices. These matrices** are to guide the alignment of educator preparation programs to Colorado Rules and Regulations and are used in both the authorization and reauthorization process of all programs in Colorado. 

**You will note that the matrices are excel files with columns that are stagnant and cannot be expanded, However, the rows have been created to be manipulated so you can expand as needed. All standards matrices in excel have multiple sheets, often including the Teacher Quality Standards and any additional standards required to fulfill that endorsement for licensure.
