This week the Colorado Board of Education will begin the process of crafting statewide rules to measure educator effectiveness.
Last month, the State Council on Educator Effectiveness gave 60 recommendations to the State Board of Education. That body will now craft final rules which may or may not include the recommendations. Council Vice-Chair Nina Lopez says the main goal is simply to make sure the best people are working in the state’s schools.

More than a dozen environmentalists rallied in downtown Fort Collins today. At issue was Republican 4th Congressional District Congressman Cory Gardner’s support of legislation that would have blocked the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gas emissions.
The protesters delivered a letter to Congressman Gardner, questioning his support for a bill that would have taken away the EPA’s ability to limit carbon dioxide emissions. Gary Wockner is Colorado program director for Clean Water Action, which helped organize Friday’s event.
