As typically happens with legislation to amend current law, these bills are in response to situations that have happened over the past year in the state. The widely publicized Cesar Chavez Network governance and administrative issues certainly caught the attention of Colorado lawmakers. As did the recent school district takeover of Brighton College HS. Likewise, the discussion related to how to be a good authorizer resulted in a bill.
