DENVER — The Colorado Department of Higher Education and Colorado Department of Education is hosting a town hall meeting from 1-2:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 18, at East Central BOCES Office, 820 Second St., Limon. The gathering is part of a statewide series to gather input for a strategic action plan to address the state’s educator shortage. School district employees, parents, students and concerned community members are asked to attend. The departments have also released online surveys in English and Spanish. The extended outreach effort is part of the implementation of House Bill 17-1003, signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper in May. The bill requires the departments to develop a joint action plan for recruiting and retaining high-quality teachers.
