Colorado-BCSQ-PR :: January, 31 2011

Colorado has been at the forefront of the charter school movement since 1994, when its first charter law was adopted. Supporting the state's charter sector for nearly two decades, the Colorado League of Charter Schools (the League) spearheaded the Building Charter School Quality (BCSQ) initiative to address the challenge of quality in the nation's charter schools. In 2006, the League convened a national charter coalition, partners including CREDO at Stanford University, the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools and the National Association of Charter School Authorizers, which developed quality standards that can apply across the nation's charter sector.
