The Chaffee Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) will hold a special executive session at 8:00 a.m. Wednesday, February 8 in the commissioners’ meeting room at 104 Crestone Avenue in Salida.

The executive session under CRS 24-6-402(4)(d) is scheduled for purpose of receiving specialized detail on a current investigation by the Sheriff and Department of Human Services. The obvious topic: the closure of the Chaffee Childcare Initiative (CCI) program at The Schoolhouse in Poncha Springs, and the misdemeanor citations issued to CCI Executive Director Amy Lovato and Schoolhouse Director Roberta Rodriquez.

A large number of Schoolhouse parents, many still struggling to find childcare, have indicated that they feel they were coerced into signing victims forms and do not want to be included on any charges against the Schoolhouse, Lovato and Rodriquez.
