NO FISCAL IMPACT
January 6, 1999
Harry Zeid (303-866-4753)
TITLE: CONCERNING THE REPEAL OF SPECIFIC DROPOUT PROGRAMS, AND, IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, REPEALING EDUCATIONAL CLINICS FOR PUBLIC SCHOOL DROPOUTS AND THE SECOND CHANCE PROGRAM FOR PROBLEM STUDENTS.
Summary of Assessment
This bill would repeal Articles 27 and 52 of Title 22, C.R.S. Article 27 allowed for the establishment of educational clinics for public school dropouts, and Article 52 established the second chance program for problem students. An educational clinic has not been approved in several years, and the second chance program is no longer necessary because the goals of the program are being accomplished through the schools of choice program.
No state funds have ever been appropriated for the two programs and repeal of these two articles is assessed as having no fiscal impact on the state or on local school districts. The bill would become effective upon signature of the Governor.
