CDE is currently seeking public comment on revisions to the Rules for the Administration of the Educator Licensing Act of 1991, 1 CCR 301-37. This rulemaking process has been initiated as a result of legislation stemming from the 2020 legislative cycle, and includes rules related to HB20-1128, HB20-1312, and SB20-158.
These rule amendments are intended to:
Update professional development requirements for renewal of professional educator licenses.
Refine terminology to align with recent legislation.
Update the Adult Basic Education certification to align with Colorado Community College standards.
Additionally, this rulemaking process includes a proposed amendment to Rule 10.01 and a proposed new Rule 10.06. The proposed amendment to Rule 10.01 would update the standards for "professional incompetence" under C.R.S. § 22-60.5-107(4). The proposed new Rule 10.06 would require educators to notify the department if they file a petition to seal criminal records, to align with § 24-72-703.
