These aims are a central part of the Colorado Department of Education’s Statewide System of Accountability and Support and the goals outlined in the Education Accountability Act of 2009 (SB 09-163).

To support the various state, district and school uses of the performance frameworks, both district and school performance frameworks will be provided to districts annually at the start of the school year.
