Military Family Open Enrollment In Public Schools

Abstract

The bill defines "inbound active duty military member" as an active duty military member who receives new orders, or a command letter issued in lieu of orders, for a permanent change of station to a department of defense military installation in Colorado. The bill requires a school district, district charter school, and institute charter school to accept the school liaison address for the military installation for purposes of demonstrating residency for inbound active duty military members participating in open enrollment. The bill requires a school district, district charter school, and institute charter school to grant guaranteed automatic matriculation to the child of an inbound active duty military member while the child remains in the school, and priority preference for younger siblings of the child for enrollment in subsequent school years. If an inbound active duty military member is mission essential as certified by the commander of the military installation and is required to live on the military installation due to that certification, the inbound active duty military member's child must be enrolled in the school or program of a school district or in the charter school of the inbound active duty military member's choice. The school shall grant guaranteed automatic matriculation while the child remains in the school and siblings receive priority preference for enrollment in the school in subsequent school years.
