DSST and Other Charters Lead on Colorado State Test Results

Colorado state test results have recently been released for the 2018-19 school year and a few celebrations are in order!

First, a shout out to Denver’s charter schools for their support of students with special needs. For Colorado’s 2019 middle school standardized test (CMAS) growth - charters made up the top 5 schools for literacy growth and 8 of the top 9 for math growth for students with special needs.
