Watkins also said there will be mental health professionals available in the school for students and teachers impacted by the incident. If the bill is signed into law, it will phase out defined-benefit pensions for teachers and replace them with hybrid retirement plans that combine traditions pensions with features of 401 (k) accounts.

A school district spokesman reported that teacher absences were "nothing out of the norm" on Monday.

"It's part of the national conversation amongst teachers", Poudre Education Association president Tom List said. Walk-ins are rallies outside the school before classes that end with teachers and students walking into the schools together for the start of classes.

However, lawmakers we spoke with say they've been very clear that the education budget will not change.

"It's about the fact that Colorado has the top performing economy in the country, and yet our schools are still funded at or near the bottom", List said. Two children were taken to the hospital by their parents, where they were treated and released.

"I'm doing this so that the young teacher, that college student, who's thinking about becoming a teacher, isn't frightened away from this". He said because funding is so low, he feels his students don't have the resources they need to succeed.

"I've taught for over 34 years and it's getting worse instead of better".

"We have more and more students coming to us who have trauma, abuse, neglect, or complex histories that impact their ability to learn and responds in ways that we're used to", Smith said.

Katrina Ruff, a local Oklahoma City teacher, stood with hundreds of fellow protestors at the Capitol chanting "No funding, no future!"
