The Colorado Integration Project is a collaborative effort being led by 13 Colorado school districts with support from the Colorado Department of Education and The Colorado Education Initiative to pilot a more integrated model of teaching and learning designed to significantly improve the number and rate of students who graduate from Colorado high schools college and career-ready. The districts are the most comprehensive microcosm of the reforms that will take place in every district in the state.

Nearly all middle and high school students in the United States need substantially stronger reading and writing skills to be ready for adult success. The Literacy Design Collaborative offers a fresh approach to incorporating literacy into middle and high school content areas. For more information, click here.
The Colorado Integration Districts are:
- Centennial School District
- Denver Public Schools
- Thompson School District
- San Juan BOCES – nine school districts in southwest corner of Colorado
Over the next three years, these 12 leading school districts will serve as “learning laboratories” and leaders to share lessons learned and best practices as part of ongoing work. These districts will be models for the rest of the state, continuously collaborating to inform best practices for local and statewide implementation.
