The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) is offering new learning cohorts for school and district leaders to support learning and collaboration in targeted areas. Learning cohorts will convene for 3-5 sessions via Zoom and/or in-person sessions to learn about a topic, share and observe practices of other schools, and discuss strategies for implementation. The cohorts will meet via Zoom and/or in-person sessions. This is a free opportunity that may include some funding for participation and implementation. 

The spring cohorts will focus on the following areas:
