Menu of College and Career-Ready Demonstrations

On July 8, 2020, the Colorado State Board of Education voted in favor of providing school districts the flexibility to suspend the college and career demonstrations of readiness (Menu of College and Career-Ready Demonstrations).

Therefore, during the 2020-2021 school year, Adams 14 will replace the Menu of College and Career-Ready Demonstrations with meeting the 2020-2021 English and math requirements for graduation. Students are required to pass 3 credits of math and 4 credits of English. Full implementation of the state’s college and career ready graduation benchmarks for students are anticipated to continue for the 2021-22 school year.
