Colorado Needs to Pass the Parental Involvement for Academic Activities Bill for Families Like Mine

Colorado Needs to Pass the Parental Involvement for Academic Activities Bill for Families Like Mine

I am a widow with a 12-year-old son, and my family supports HB-1002, Parental Involvement for Academic Activities, which reenacts the 2009 “Parental Involvement in K-12 Education Act.” This bill would allow parents to take a limited amount of job-protected time off from work to attend their children’s academic activities.
