2017 LegUpdate headerzz.png
Welcome to the BVSD Legislative Update, which will be provided throughout the 2017 session of the Colorado General Assembly which convened January 11. Each year, the BVSD Board of Education sets BVSD's legislative priorities for the session. My office directs the lobbying work of BVSD's legislative consulting firm, Policy Matters, LLC. BVSD also works with other PK-12 policy organizations such as the Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB), the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE), the Colorado Education Association (CEA), and Great Education Colorado, a nonpartisan organization advocating for the benefit of Colorado's more than 800,000 public school students. Addressing Colorado's chronic shortfall in school funding is always on our legislative agenda along with other issues that could impact our classrooms. Each week, my office will send you a link to this page with updates from the State Capitol. If you are not yet on the email list and would like to be, please email BVSD Communications at communications@bvsd.org with your email address and you will be added to the distribution list.
