WHY DID WE CHANGE OUR NAME?
The Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) better reflects where we do our work, who we serve and our bias for action. We have always been dedicated to our mission, tenacious about our goals and focused on results. Over the past several years, our statewide focus and close partnership with the Colorado Department of Education and collaborators – like you – have offered a unique opportunity to do much more. Our former name, Colorado Legacy Foundation, did not fully capture who we were as an organization.
The only thing that changes is our name.
WHAT STAYS THE SAME?
Our vision, mission and values remain the same. The Colorado Education Initiative believes that increased student achievement for all Colorado students requires that every student in Colorado is prepared and unafraid to succeed in school, work, and life, and to take on the challenges of today, tomorrow, and beyond.
As an independent non-profit organization, we work in partnership with the Colorado Department of Education and public education stakeholders to catalyze bold improvement in student achievement through innovation, collaboration and capacity building. CEI identifies, incubates and implements promising improvement strategies in high impact areas of public education that enhance academic achievement and support students, educators and leaders.
We equip teachers, leaders and organizations with the knowledge, tools, guidance and resources to drive improvement outcomes while creating the conditions to innovate together, share knowledge and explore new possibilities in creating a high-quality public education system that ensures the success of every educator, leader and student.
