Grade Level: K-12
The Colorado Campaign for the Civic Mission of Schools,
a bipartisan coalition of education, community, and policy leaders
statewide, aims to increase the quantity and quality of civic learning
in Colorado schools, grades K-12. The Campaign engages educators,
policymakers, business leaders, students, and others in building
public support and leadership to renew the civic mission of our
schools. Colorado is one of six states working nationally to renew
civic learning. The Colorado Campaign began in November 2004 and
will expand over the next two or more years. Strategies include:
a statewide coalition to give strategic direction, stewardship,
and voice to the campaign.
• Supporting several local sites to participate in a collaborative,
community engagement process that leads to local policy and
• Implementing communications, information, and outreach
plans to expand the constituency of supporters and understanding
of a more comprehensive K-12 approach to civic learning.
• Identifying statewide priorities (if any) and create
a shared agenda for improving civic learning across the state.
• Developing and linking with strategic partnerships and
networks to increase effectiveness and success of the Campaign.
• Develop resources to implement the Campaign plans.
