New Bill: School Districts to Report Violations in 24 Hours

By  | 

Denver (AP)- A bill giving school districts a 24-hour deadline
to report violations to the state is now being considered by the
legislature's judiciary committee, after the education committee
chairman said the issues in the bill were more legal than
educational.
Golden Democratic Representative Gwyn Green introduced the bill
last week. It'd give the State Board of Education 24 hours to do a
complete background check on teacher applicants.
It would also strip school boards and the State Board of
Education of immunity from lawsuits if they fail to do hiring
background checks.
The bill would require school districts to report any
teacher who's dismissed or who resigns as a result of unlawful
behavior involving a child -- if supported by a preponderance of
evidence.
