News regarding the Educator Action Plan Town Hall Meetings.
The town halls will be hosted by the Colorado Department of Higher Education and Colorado Department of Education.
Educators, students, parents and concerned members of the public are encouraged to share their experiences and ideas for recruiting and retaining educators.
