As a follow-up to an item we reported recently in our “Outrage of the Week” section, this week State Representative Kevin Lundberg (R-15) introduced Senate Bill 237 to bring common-sense to Colorado’s school expulsion statute.
The bill would allow school administrators to use discretion, rather than requiring a mandatory expulsion, in cases such as what occurred to an Aurora, CO high school student who had replica rifles stored in her car. The student was in possession of the props as part of a drill routine competition for the Young Marines and in no way deserved expulsion.
SB 237 passed the Senate Judiciary Committee this week and now moves to the Senate floor.
Please contact the members of the Colorado Senate and respectfully urge them support SB 237. Their contact information can be found by clicking here.
