Parent Notice For Student Safety And Protection


The bill requires school districts, district charter schools, institute charter schools, and boards of cooperative services (local education providers) to notify parents of students enrolled in a local education provider of charges brought against an employee or former employee, if the employee was employed at any time within 12 months before an offense is charged, who has or had contact with students, if the charges are for one of the felony offenses that requires the denial, suspension, or revocation of a teacher license if the employee were a teacher. The bill specifies the students whose parents must receive notification and the information that a local education provider shall include in the parent notification. The local education provider shall notify parents by mail or electronic means within 2 school days after the employee has had or has waived a preliminary hearing, if available, on the charge unless the appropriate law enforcement agency requests a delay in notification. If notice is sent to parents, the local education provider shall also send notice within 2 school days to the same parents in the same manner regarding the disposition of the charges. Each local education provider shall monitor employee arrest information received from the Colorado bureau of investigation to determine whether charges are filed and the status of the preliminary hearing. The bill prohibits the state board of education from waiving the requirements of the bill relating to parent notification for school districts or for charter schools authorized by a school district or by the state charter school institute.
