HB 17-1089: Parent Choice in Low-performing School Districts

The bill mandates that chronically low-performing districts create parent choice accounts for deposits of per pupil revenue. Choice accounts can be used for private or public schools outside of the district.

Legislative procedure in Colorado requires every introduced bill to have a hearing in committee. The committee members will either support the bill and vote pass it out of committee for consideration by the full body, or kill the bill and vote to “indefinitely postpone” it.

The motion in the House Education Committee was to “postpone indefinitely” HB 1089 so the pro-education vote was a “yes” vote.
