The State of Colorado receives migrant education program (MEP) funding for which federal law mandates that the state identify and recruit all migrant students residing in Colorado who are eligible to receive services provided by the MEP. Identification and recruitment are critical activities because, the children who are most in need of program services are often those who are the most difficult to find.

From the turn of the century through 2008, fewer Coloradans died of cardiovascular disease. Although fewer were dying of heart disease and stroke, more Coloradans were developing the risk factors that lead to cardiovascular disease. High blood pressure is pervasive, obesity rates have doubled and too few Coloradans get the nutritious food and physical activity needed to keep their hearts healthy. Research shows that social, economic and environmental factors have a significant impact on health outcomes.
This study is the evaluation of two thin bonded epoxy overlays. These two products were compared on the basis of physical properties, including mean texture depth, surface friction, bond strength, ability to stop chloride intrusion, and anti-icing properties, as well as traffic safety and cost. Both overlays worked as intended when they were initially applied on the bridge decks. Mean texture depth and friction testing have shown that they both provide a durable wearing surface with good traction.
