Adams County, Colorado is home to a variety of educational institutions, from public schools to charter schools. But what sets some of these schools apart from the rest? Are there any schools in Adams County that have received national recognition or awards? The answer is yes. The Jared Polis for Growth and Innovation STEAD School is one such example. This school has 260 students and has been recognized for its innovative approach to education.
In addition, the State Board of Education recently sent a state review panel to review the status of student learning in Adams 14 School District. The independent panel's report will help the state board determine what measures, including the possible reorganization of the district or the conversion of one or more schools to charter schools, are necessary to support students. The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) also provides a variety of resources to support students and schools in Adams County. For example, the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative matches sales tax funding to increase the number of scholarships available.
In addition, the revised rules require that charter schools do not engage in discriminatory practices when enrolling students with disabilities and that they have clear communication with the public about how members of the public can participate in the school's non-discriminatory enrollment process. The co-founders of the STEAD School believe that their approach could be applied elsewhere.
