Our Work

Over the next few years, CEI will center our work around four main areas of focus, which we believe are the strategies that will create learning environments where student agency and equity are a priority as both a design strategy and an outcome.


  Partnering with schools and districts to explore accountability measures, processes, and tools that focus on continuous improvement.

High School Redesign

  Reimagining high schools to respond to the current and future needs of students and communities.  

Competency-Based and Personalized Learning

  Disrupting traditional models of learning to create a student-centered system for the 21st century.

The Lab at CEI

Providing Colorado educators with space, time, and resources to dig into big ideas about how to improve education systems, with a focus on design thinking.
