The following organizations joined our coalition and confirmed support of the following statement:
Get our kids back to school — safely, this Fall. As a broad, diverse coalition of parents, educators, healthcare professionals, community groups, nonprofits, civic organizations, advocacy organizations, chambers of commerce, and business leaders, we are united in our hope that Colorado’s K-12 schools will safely reopen this fall for in-person learning. Many students, particularly from underserved backgrounds, simply cannot access a quality education if schools do not offer an option for full-time, in-person learning. As businesses reopen, the lack of full-time in-person learning creates incredible difficulties for working parents. We are committed to ensuring that schools reopen with the proper safety protocols to protect the health of students, teachers, staff, and the broader community. Kids get one chance at an education and we are here to support them as they develop as learners and citizens.
