State Board of Education Waivers
In 2017, the Colorado legislature enacted a new law known as HB-1375. This new law is primarily known for its provisions that will alter how school districts share local mill levy override revenues with charter schools. However, there are requirements applicable to charter schools within the law which deal with waivers granted by the Colorado State Board of Education.
New Requirements Under HB-1375
Starting July 1, 2017: Each charter school must post on its website, in a location and format that can be easily accessed and downloaded for free by the public, a list of the statutes for which the school has received a waiver from the State Board of Education. For each waiver that is not an automatic waiver, the school must also post a copy of the Rational and Replacement Plan (RRP).
