Welcome to The Outliers, A+ Colorado’s first annual report exploring how districts across the Centennial State are serving diverse student populations. We envision a state where every student has access to a high quality education: an education that provides students with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities needed for success in the 21st century.
The intent of The Outliers is to do just that— identify school districts that buck trends across the state. This provides a snapshot of where outcomes for students are different from the norm, where the promise of an excellent education shines bright, and where that light is still too dim. Above all this report identifies districts that are demonstrating success and merit further investigation.
