The bill authorizes a public school, in kindergarten through eighth

exceed the Colorado academic standards adopted by the state board of
education for civics education.
The bill lists the topics relating to the United States' and Colorado's
systems of government that are included in an American civics course of

study option and describes the use of comparative analysis when studying
other countries' systems of government.
A public school is encouraged to use the community forum process
for community input on civics education currently in law to inform the
content of an American civics course of study option.
