Bill to give parents better idea of students’ abilities


DENVER — Parents of Colorado public high school students who have taken college entrance exams will have to be given more information about inadequate scores in mathematics, writing or reading.

Under a measure Gov. Bill Owens signed into law Tuesday, those notices — to be sent out by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education beginning next spring — will also have to inform parents about a student’s ability to take basic, pre-collegiate skills courses while still enrolled in high school.

House Bill 1027 also requires schools to develop study plans, when parents request them, to help the student with coursework needed to meet admission guidelines for Colorado’s public colleges or universities.

Owens on Tuesday also signed Senate Bill 191, which extends a “teacher-loan forgiveness program” to those who agree to teach in high-poverty elementary schools in rural Colorado school districts.

HB191 extends and expands a pilot program for forgiving qualified teachers’ student loans through mid-2013. It was to expire in mid-2008.
