Colorado Department of Education declares April 29 as ‘Decision Day’
DENVER (KRDO) -- The Colorado Department of Education has declared Friday, April 29 as Decision Day. The Colorado campaign is to celebrate the importance of higher education and inspire Colorado students to attend either a university, community college, private occupational school, serve as an apprentice, or in the military.
In a news release, Coloradans are encouraged to dress up in apparel from their alma mater, favorite school, or future program to rally in support of students on their educational path to success.
“Decision Day celebrates our students’ educational aspirations, honoring dignity in all paths,” said Colorado Department of Higher Education Executive Director Dr. Angie Paccione. “High school seniors have spent the last several months researching options, applying to programs, and filing the FAFSA and CASFA. Wearing our gear shows we appreciate their hard work and that we believe in their potential.”
In Colorado, 75% of jobs require postsecondary education, which makes the state a high demand for college-educated adults.
Coloradans can participate in the digital campaign by posting to Twitter and Facebook and using #DecisionDayCO to engage in the campaign.
