twelve, in the State of Colorado.
a. Schools in operation prior to the effective date of these regulations, which would require
capitol expenditures to fully meet all of the design, construction and equipment
requirements of these regulations, may be deemed acceptable if in good repair and

Adopted by the State Board of Health on May 21, 2003
Basis and Purpose.
The purpose of the Rules and Regulations Governing Schools in the State of Colorado is to protect the
health of individuals (students, staff and visitors) working in or attending schools in the State of Colorado.
In order to achieve this goal, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (Department)
has established the above referenced health and sanitation requirements.
The Department, in an effort to meet the requirements referenced by the Office of Legislative Legal
Services, is revising the wording of portions of the above Rules and Regulations.
Specific Statutory Authority.
These rules and proposed revisions were promulgated pursuant to 25-1-107(1)(m), 25-1-107(1)(s), and
25-1-107(1)(t), C.R.S.
Alternative Rules Considered and Why Rejected.
In this particular instance there are no other rules to consider or reject. The proposed changes are simply
semantic changes to existing statements that do not result in any increased or altered responsibility to the
Schools in their attempt to comply with the rules.
Major Factual and Policy Issues Encountered.
The issues of concern here are not in conflict with current requirements placed upon school systems, but
rather a clarification of the incorporated references and therefore can only enhance the schools ability to
understand the requirements.
