HB 1221: Parental Involvement for Academic Achievement
In 2009, the Colorado State Legislature passed Parental Involvement for Academic Achievement which allowed many Colorado employees to take leave to attend their children’s school activities. Research has consistently shown that increased parental involvement in the education and schooling of their children correlates with greater academic achievement outcomes. This legislation expires this year and should be extended. Click here to read the fact sheet and learn more about this bill.
