Academic Standards

Denver Public Schools has embraced the Colorado Academic and Common Core State Standards to ensure that students are ready for college and careers in the 21st century. The new standards provide a clear and consistent understanding of what students are expected to learn at each grade level.

Academic standards are clear and consistent targets for what students are expected to learn each year. Colorado has always had standards, and by integrating new standards, we can ensure that our students are ready for college and careers in the 21st century. Why are these standards so important?

Watch videos on how DPS teachers are using the new academic standards.
