  • The Starting School Stronger event on June 14 has been cancelled at this time due to low registration numbers.


  • What you need to know about three bills related to or contributing to school funding:
    • SB21-268 — School Finance bill passed and was updated to include an expanded definition of at-risk students and additional funding for ELL students (previously covered in HB21-1325).
    • HB21-1325 — Bill has been revised by moving the elements mentioned above into the School Finance bill, removing the mill levy equalization, and keeping the interim committee.
    • HB21-1164 — The financial runs for this bill are no longer valid as the money has been allocated to fund the changes to SB21-268. 

  • The call for resolutions is now open and the deadline for submission this year is Friday, August 30th. There is a guidance document that provides additional information on the process. 
  • There are more than 100 education-related bills that would influence public education introduced so far this session. You can find all the details on CASB’s interactive bill graphic and bill tracker
  • CASB’s Key Legislative Priorities are on the website and available for sharing with members and asking them to connect with their Key Legislators.



This mission of the Colorado Association of School Boards is to advance excellence in public education and equity for each and every student through effective leadership by the collective action of locally elected boards of education.
