Chalkbeat Colorado: With Colorado under shut in orders, local elected bodies are changing how they conduct public business.
In most cases, local school boards are no longer hosting a time to hear public comment during their virtual meetings, instead suggesting that public feedback be submitted in writing, and because of the emergency situation, several districts are changing meeting schedules, making it potentially tricky for the public to keep up.
