We Need Access to Town Halls!

Hopefully you’ve seen that Town Halls are being scheduled to work on the study regarding the teacher shortage. Dates are listed below, with the metro area receiving only one and that is to be determined, it’s also a professional staff development day.

Will you please join us in advocacy and send an email asking for more dates? Our voice needs to be included to Support Jeffco Kids!

Subject: Townhalls for Teacher Shortage
Hi Megan
I’m asking that CDE add more townhall dates for the metro area. I love that you’re including rural as that’s where I grew up and have 11 nieces and nephews in rural areas. However, 75% of the students in Colorado, and their families and educators, live in the metro area. One date (TBD also) is not sufficient to allow discussion and voices regarding the subject that impacts our children. I am writing to ask that this be increased, substantially to allow for this opportunity.
Thanks so much!
