Embracing the Full Range of Human Experience

In today’s merciless and instantaneous global economy, anything that can be automated or outsourced to a cheaper labor market will be, or it already has. For our future generations to succeed, we will need to reinforce those things that are uniquely human: aesthetic and human experiences which bring meaning, beauty, and purpose to the world. We must educate our students so they are all able to engage with and appreciate the arts and creative design, support them in becoming life-long creators, and expand opportunities to acquire new languages.

Theory of Action

IF we expand and promote well-rounded educational experiences (languages, music, theater, visual arts, world language, health education, physical education, well-being) THEN students will apply learning through uniquely human/human-centered tasks.


  • By 2024, at least 500 students will graduate with the Colorado and/or Jeffco Seal of Biliteracy.
  • By 2024, 100% of middle schools will implement at least 2 of the vertically aligned course progressions in the areas of Music, Theater, Visual Arts and World Language.
  • By 2024, at least 70% of responses from schools will be "yes" on the Colorado Healthy Schools Smart Source survey (General Health Policy and Practices item #4).
