Dr. Lorenzo A. Trujillo has a long history as an educator and advocate of children, youth and families. He served as the Executive Director of Humanities in Jefferson County Public Schools throughout the 80’s, and then, in Adams County Public School District 14 from 1996-2004, as a Principal of an alternative high school and In-House Legal Counsel for Truancy.
In 2004, he became the Assistant Dean and Professor of Law at the University of Colorado Law School. In 2007, he was distinguished in serving the Colorado State Legislature in chairing and co-authoring the Trujillo Commission of Online Education: Findings and Recommendations through the Donnell Kay Foundation. (SB 07-215-C.R.S. 22-30.7 et seq.)
His policy work in education led him to a task force of the United States Senate where he addressed Education of Latino Youth: Early Childhood Education, K-12, Access to Higher Education, and the Dream Act. His work as an attorney was pivotal in addressing attempts to commandeer language equity and access of non-English speaking children in our schools resulting in two favorable decisions by the Colorado Supreme Court (Ballot Title 2001-2002 No.21 7 No. 22, 44P.3d 213 (Colo. 2002); In Re Ballot Title 1999-2000 No. 258 (A), 4 P.3d 1094 (Colo. 2000) and making sure our children are tested in their primary language in academic subjects in proceedings involving the U.S. Office of Civil Rights and Department of Education.
Dr. Trujillo’s work on truancy, suspension, and expulsion procedures in the schools resulted in statewide adoption of intervention policies and statutory revisions to keep our K-12 youth in schools.
He continues to work while focusing on family, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
*Advocates for Public Education Policy (A4PEP) was created in response to concerns about the adverse effects of failed education “reform” policies. We are a statewide coalition of individuals and grassroots organizations working to educate the public and policymakers to ensure that public education policy works for all, and to fight back against the corporatization and privatization attacks on our public schools.
