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.

If you cannot attend a town hall event in person, you’re asked to share your thoughts and suggestions through an online survey.

House Bill 17-1003, signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper in May, requires DHE and CDE to develop a collaborative action plan that will outline the necessary steps to resolve the state’s educator shortage. Feedback and participation from interested individuals and groups is an essential component of the process and final action plan.
