Regular State Board Meeting - May, 2019
Wednesday, May 8, 2019, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
10:00 – 10:30 a.m. Public Comment
Members of the public will have the opportunity to address the State Board, except in any charter school appeals currently before the Board. This is the case, because the State Board has a very narrow authority in charter school disputes, and the board handles such cases differently than other matters. Because of the special status given to these proceedings under the law, the board cannot consider letters and outside materials sent in from the public, and cannot entertain comments about the appeal during the public comment portion of its meeting. If the public would like to provide comment on the rule-making hearing, specific designated time will be available on Wednesday, May 8, during the hearing at 1:30 p.m.
Est. 12:00 p.m. Lunch Recess: The State Board will recess for lunch: 201 East Colfax – 1st Floor
Executive Session: The State Board of Education will convene an executive session to receive legal advice on specific legal questions pursuant to 24-6-402(3)(a)(II) C.R.S., and on matters required to be kept confidential by federal law, rules or state statutes pursuant to 24-6-402(3)(a)(III) C.R.S.
