We are on step closer to House Bill 22-1220 becoming a reality! 

House Bill 22-1220, which will remove barriers to support teacher candidates entering the workforce, passed the House and is being heard in the Senate Education Committee TOMORROW. We need to show Senators how much support there is for this policy, so will you send an email with one click?     


HB22-1220 will:  

  • support teacher candidates by paying them for their student teaching work, 
  • remove financial barriers by paying for teacher exam fees, and
  • expand pathways to licensure by allowing multiple ways to demonstrate competency. 

Read more about HB22-1220 in this Colorado Sun article. We are proud to champion HB22-1220 because we see this policy as a pathway to increasing teacher diversity in Colorado. We know that removing financial barriers and increasing pathways to licensure will ensure a more diverse educator workforce, which is critical for all of Colorado’s students to experience just and supportive schools. 

Senate Bill 22-004, which ensures principals and administrators are trained with the most up-to-date, research-based knowledge of how students learn to read, passed out of the Senate! It now moves to the House and lawmakers need to hear from you!

Will you take a minute to ask members of the House Education Committee to support SB22-004?

Colorado educator, Molly Veliz shares why this bill is so important saying,

“We have the opportunity to change the course for so many more students in Colorado to become successful, fluent readers.  And when students can read, we know the world opens up to them.”

With your help, we can be one step closer to ensuring principals and administrators are equipped with the training needed to support educators in teaching students how to read!
