Legislative Breakfast provides preview of upcoming session, continuing challenges
There were lots of tough questions and no easy answers at the annual Cherry Creek Schools Legislative Breakfast, held Nov. 9 at the Student Achievement Resource Center.  Sponsored by the Cherry Creek Community Legislative Network (CCCLN), the event brings together parents, district employees, members of the Board of Education, and local lawmakers for a morning of frank discussion about legislative issues.
 
State legislators attending the event were: Sen. Linda Newell, D-Arapahoe/Jefferson; Sen. Nancy Spence, R-Arapahoe; Sen. Suzanne Williams, D-Arapahoe; Rep. Kathleen Conti,  R-Arapahoe/Jefferson; Rep. Daniel Kagen, D-Arapahoe/Denver; Rep. Joe Miklosi, D-Arapahoe/Denver; Rep. Su Ryden, D-Arapahoe; Rep. Spencer Swalm, R-Arapahoe. 
 
They shared their thoughts on the upcoming legislative session, which begins in January, as well as the continuing state budget crisis and other issues affecting education.
 
Many parents in the audience expressed concern about unfunded mandates from state and federal government, which place additional burdens on local school districts. 
 
The Cherry Creek Community Legislative Network is a non-partisan committee promoting awareness of education issues, legislation and the legislative process.  CCCLN will host a “Day at the Capitol” during the legislative session.  It will begin at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 14, 2012.  For more information, contact Mariellen Guerra at grobert67@comcast.net.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
