EE in Colorado's Academic Standards

The Colorado State Board of Education adopted new Colorado Academic Standards in December of 2009 and is currently revising them.   These standards outline what every Colorado learner should know and be able to do by the time they graduate from high school.  The State Board of Education will be voting on the new standards in Summer 2018.

Several CAEE members served on the subcommittees responsible for revising the science and social studies standards and numerous members commented on drafts throughout the public feedback process.

The result:  Environmental education is integrated throughout the new draft standards.

Contact CAEE for resources and tools to help your school or district integrate more environmental education.

To find out more about the implementation process or to download copies of the new draft standards visit the Colorado Department of Education’s website.

CAEE works to ensure everyone in Colorado has an opportunity to learn about the environment where they live. We value inclusiveness and welcome everyone to the field of environmental education.
