State Statute Waivers

The passage of House Bill 17-1375 in May 2017 by the Colorado state legislature requires charter schools to post their waivers from all state statutes, including both automatic and non-automatic waivers. Replacement plans for all non-automatic waivers from state statute must be included in the posting on the school’s website.

The applicable section of the legislation, which was signed into law June 2, 2017, is included below:

C.R.S. 22-44-305(1)(a) reads,

“Commencing July 1, 2017… [each] charter school shall post, in a location and format that can be easily accessed and downloaded, for free public access on its website…a list of the statutes for which the … charter school has received a waiver from the state board of education and, for each waiver that is not an automatic waiver, a copy of the plan that explains the manner in which the … charter school will meet the intent of the waived statute.”
