Grants to this Grantee
for a research-practice partnership to test theories of diffusion and scaled impact
The Colorado Education Initiative, a nonprofit that invests time, expertise, and money in K-12 public education, stands at the forefront of improvement, innovation, and change in Colorado’s school system. Working with the principals and central office leadership of a Colorado Springs school district, the grantee and other partner organizations will build their capacity to create an ecosystem that supports student learning. The grantee will compile a set of practices that other districts can adopt and that researchers and educators can use to learn about the spread of innovative practices.
for expanding a statewide teacher collaboration initiative around performance assessment
The Colorado Education Initiative collaborates with the Colorado Department of Education and schools and districts across the state to help transform policy into innovative teaching practices. With this grant, the initiative will support districts and teachers as they develop alternative accountability systems that provide teachers with timely and actionable evidence of student learning that can be used to improve teaching practice.
