Colorado Blended Learning Meeting

We received the following message this morning and figured we’d share as our Jeffco education stakeholders may very well want to ensure that their voices are in the room! We don’t know much about this so if you go, we’d love if you share info back to us!

 

“I was wondering if you might be able or willing to spread the word about a meeting that Colorado Empowered Learning, with the help of the Keystone Policy Center, is hosting next week in Lakewood? The meeting is part of a statewide outreach effort to gather perspectives that will inform Colorado’s blended learning roadmap.”

Here (below) is the location and time of the meeting:

March 8, 5:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

Lakewood Library

10200 W 20th Ave.

Lakewood, CO 80215
