Colorado’s Achievement Plan for Kids (CAP4K) Cost Study

Since 2009, APA had been working for the Colorado Department of Education to understand the cost impact of Colorado's Achievement Plan for Kids (CAP4K) which includes new requirements around school readiness, content standards, assessments, and postsecondary and workforce readiness. The work has involved interviews, focus groups, identifying promising practices, and developing cost impact figures for school districts, institutions of higher education, the Department of Education, and the Department of Higher Education.
