Science Implementation Feedback
The Colorado Department of Education is soliciting feedback on the Implementation Timeline for the 2020 Colorado Academic Standards for Science. Currently, the legislated timeline for districts to transition to the revised standards allows for two years, with full implementation to occur during the 2020-2021 school year. Some considerations for SCIENCE ONLY include:
- Keep science on the same implementation timeline as the other standards, OR
- Delay implementation to allow districts to prepare and for the state assessment system to adjust.
