What We Do
ORGANIZING TO EMPOWERING PARENTS AND EDUCATORS
Stand Colorado empowers individuals who are just as passionate as we are about improving the education system across the state. Our team of organizers train and mobilize our members and leaders -- parents, educators, and community members -- to demand that local and state decision-makers do what’s right for kids. Stand parents and supporters show up, speak out, reach out, and vote to ensure every student gets a quality education and graduates from high school prepared for college.
Every day, decisions are made about education that impact children in every classroom. Our goal is to ensure the people making these decisions are well-informed champions for children and that their decisions are made in students’ best interest to have the greatest positive impact.
ADVOCATING TO IMPROVE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
In order for every child to graduate college-ready, policies need to be in place that provide the best outcome for all children, regardless of background. Education policies can dictate everything from length of a school day or year to funding distribution to staffing requirements to curriculum. Since it is our mission to ensure that all children receive an excellent education, regardless of background, we advocate for policies that will benefit children the most. In order for every child to graduate college and career-ready, smart education policies need to be in place that provide the best outcome for all children, regardless of background. We advocate for those policies at the Colorado General Assembly, the Colorado State Board of Education, and with local schools boards.
