Investment to Action

The investment the community made in public schools on November 4 is leading to immediate action.  Specifically, action is being taken to reduce unreasonably large classes; restore lost courses; move forward on focus schools; implement pre-AP programs at Longs Peak and Erie Middle Schools, and begin the process of implementing capital improvement projects.

We will see the effects of these actions when school begins again in January.

For more details, here is the Times-Call article.  And, the source documents distributed at last nights school board meeting are here.  Download sb_class_size_reductions.pdf

    John, thank you for linking to the documentation from the meeting. This is one more area where you go above and beyond in your service as a board member.

    Thanks John for posting the whole list. Wow, even after all of my research into class sizes to get this passed, I didn’t know about all of these crowded classrooms. We are SOOO excited to be getting a first grade teacher at Alpine. This is so great for the kids.
