Since the 1988 landmark decision of the Colorado Court of Appeals in People in Interest of D.B., 767 P.2d. 801 (Colo. App. 1988), many Colorado families have enrolled their children in independent schools.  This case acknowledges the practice where children are “enrolled” in an independent school but pursue their studies at home under the guidance of their parents. These schools are sometimes known as umbrella or satellite schools and have proven to be successful in providing a quality education for their enrolled students.
