CURRENT LEGISLATION - HB14-1102 GIFTED EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Thanks to Representative Cherylin Peniston and State Senator Andy Kerr, HB14-1102 passed both chambers this legislative session!  While we took some hits on the substance of the bill, gifted education in Colorado will be moving forward thanks to the efforts of this bill.  Governor Hickenlooper signed the bill on Thursday, June 5, 2014.
