School District Legal Status: AA

The Constitution of Colorado requires the General Assembly to provide for the establishment and maintenance of a thorough and uniform system of free public schools throughout the state and vests in a state board of education responsibility for their general supervision.

The constitution also requires that the General Assembly shall, by law, provide for the organization of school districts of convenient size, in each of which shall be established a board of education to have control of instruction in the public schools of the district.

As are all school districts in the state, School District 27-J of Brighton, Colorado is a body corporate with perpetual existence, and in its name may hold property for any purpose authorized by law, sue and be sued, and be a party to contracts for any purpose authorized by law.
