Educators to talk stimulus plans for Colorado
DENVER, Colorado” Colorado education officials are talking about plans to seek more federal stimulus money.
Educators are briefing state officials Wednesday on plans for Colorado to seek a portion of $5 billion the federal government has set aside for student achievement reforms. States are pitching plans to receive the grants, but in Colorado educators haven’t yet said what exactly the state proposal will be.
The briefing comes at a meeting of a state oversight board set up by Gov. Bill Ritter to track more than $2 billion coming to the state in recovery money. On Tuesday Ritter’s office released a breakdown of how the money is being spent, including at least $760 million already coming for education.
