Legislative Updates

Stay Informed

Colorado's legislative session runs January through May each year, a period during which we keep the charter school community and local advocates apprised of current developments under the golden dome, including major public policy and electoral happenings. Keep your pulse on legislation affecting the education sector, including public charter schools and use your voice to advocate for choice.

Annual Policy Agenda

Each fall, we collaborate with our Governmental Affairs Committee and Board of Directors to unveil a set of legislative priorities for the upcoming year. Seeking input from our member schools, we carefully consider their feedback on these priorities. With this valuable input, we put our agenda into action during the subsequent legislative session.
