Statutory Authority 22-2-106(1)(a)and(c), 22-2-107(1)(c),and 22-13-103, C.R.S.
Description of Subjects/Issues OLLS recently reviewed the School Turnaround Leaders Development Program rules and determined that the current version did not include additional criteria for applicants who apply for design grants. Under Section 22-13-103(2)(c), C.R.S., state board rules must include “criteria for awarding design grants to identified providers…” Though CDE had been implementing the grant and RFP process to reflect these criteria, the criteria for design grants were not specifically called out in rule. The addition of Section 2.01(2) “Additional Criteria for Design Grants” addresses the concerns raised by OLLS. This rulemaking is technical in nature and aligned with the implementation of the program. In addition, the revised rules change the design grant Provider RFP deadline from September 30th to November 30th each year. This revised timeline allows for more time for providers to apply each year.
Purpose/Objective of Rule The statutory basis for these emergency rules adopted on September 11, 2014 is found in 22-2-106(1)(a) and (c), State Board Duties; 22-2-107(1)(c), State Board Powers; and 22-13-103, C.R.S., School Turnaround Leaders Development Program – Rules. The School Turnaround Leaders Development Program, 22-13-103, C.R.S., requires the State Board of Education to promulgate rules to implement and administer the program. At a minimum, the rules must include: Criteria for identifying approved providers from among those that respond to the request for proposals pursuant to section 22-13-104, C.R.S.; Timelines for the design grant application and approval process; Criteria for awarding design grants to identified providers to partially offset the design and development costs of creating or expanding high-quality turnaround leadership development programs; Timelines for the school turnaround leader grant application and approval process; The requirements for a school turnaround leader grant application, including but not limited to the goals that the applicant expects to achieve through the grant; and Criteria for selecting school turnaround leader grant recipients.
