In 2013, CEI, the Colorado Department of Education and hundreds of teachers, workforce leaders and community members co-created this illustration known as the “Running Kid.” The aspirational student outcomes still drive our work today.
Over the next few years, we will center our work around three areas we call Big Bets, chosen for the potential they have to transform the system.
High School Redesign: CEI will help Colorado’s high schools design learning environments that offer relevant and rigorous experiences, and attend to students’ academic and social-emotional needs, to prepare all students for postsecondary learning, work, and life.
Competency-Based/Personalized Learning: CEI is intensifying our efforts to help districts build systems where students advance based on demonstrated readiness and educators tailor learning for each student’s strengths, needs, and interests.
The Lab at CEI: This is CEI’s “test kitchen” for shorter term innovation projects allowing us to uncover emerging needs and opportunities in the field while simultaneously building partner readiness to innovate.
Accelerate educational improvement and innovation across Colorado.
Every student in Colorado is prepared and unafraid to succeed in school, work, and life, and ready to take on the challenges of today, tomorrow, and beyond.
