Study says teachers in three large districts can’t afford rent with salary

Welcome to a new, short, week.

Here's what you might have missed this weekend.

Remember the discussions around the use of the Kepner middle school building a few years ago? The Denver Public Schools board voted Thursday to permanently co-locate Rocky Mountain Prep inside the Kepner building in southwest Denver. The school has already been operating there — along with three other programs — but the arrangement was originally going to be temporary. Melanie Asmar has details about the decision.

Also, catch up on how the proposed tax overhaul will impact Colorado grad students and teachers.
