A bill that was pushed by Montrose County RE-1J Superintendent George Voorhis was signed by Governor Bill Ritter today. House Bill 10-1274 will require the State Department of Human Services to notify schools before enrollment by students in state car who may present a risk to the community or themselves. This bill should prevent what happened in Montrose High School two years ago from happening to schools in Colorado ever again. In November 2008 a MHS student was attacked by an outside juvenile who was just released from a residential treatment facility. The student survived and the boy was convicted and is currently serving time in a youth offender program.
