SB 18-159: Innovation School Operating As A Community School 

Under existing law, a public school may become an innovation school by submitting an innovation plan to its local school board and having the local school board approve that plan. The bill defines 'community school' and permits a public school to include in its innovation plan that it will operate as a community school. (Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)  

CEA supports this bill because it would help actualize the community school model. This model is focuses on ensuring that the voices of all stakeholders are respected and, ultimately, the leaders of local level solutions.
