ANTI-CHARTER BILL INTRODUCED
We want to make you aware of a piece of legislation that was introduced this week and its impact on our school and other charter schools across Colorado. In order to stop this proposal (HB21-1295 - www.leg.colorado.gov/bills/hb21-1295) from moving forward, it is important that State Representatives hear from you, our families and our staff. We don’t ask you to do this often, so when we do, it’s because it’s important.

Reaching out will take less than two minutes, and our partner the Colorado League of Charter Schools has made it easy for you to speak up by putting together a sample letter and contact information that you can easily send from your phone or computer. Click here to join us in taking action now.
