Colorado schools and districts can improve student learning and system effectiveness by engaging in a cycle of continuous improvement to manage their performance. To support this purpose, the Education Accountability Act of 2009 requires each Colorado district and school to create an annual improvement plan.
The Colorado Department of Education has developed a unified improvement planning template and processes to support schools and districts in their performance management efforts. The UIP template has been designed to meet state, federal, and program accountability requirements.

Information on the TLCC Survey
Initiated through HB08-1384, the Teaching and Learning Conditions in Colorado (TLCC) Survey is a statewide survey of school-based staff (teachers and building leadership) on their perceptions of the teaching and learning conditions in their schools. Learn more at: TLCC Colorado.
