University Schools - Pioneers in Education

University Schools is a K-12 public charter school located in Greeley School District 6 in Greeley, Colorado. The tradition of developing better ways to teach our children is at the heart of University Schools. University Schools has been a leader in education for more than a century.

At University Schools, we believe that children learn best in a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment. Our students enjoy a student-led, teacher-guided educational experience.

At University High School, we focus on creating a student-centered learning program. We prepare our students for success beyond school, as they develop personal and academic plans and portfolios and participate in community service projects. We invite you to take a look around our website to see what we have to offer for your child.


A Message from Our Director

Dear University Schools Families and Friends,

I hope this newsletter finds you and your family doing well. Even though this is the last regular newsletter of the school year, there will be updates during the summer, and you will receive a registration packet for the 2016/2017 school year in mid-July.

Thank you for participating in the parent survey. The University of Northern Colorado conducts the survey, and the results will be used by our school to implement improvements based on your responses.

Congratulations to our re-elected and newly-elected board of governors members: Trevor Garrett, Bill McAdams, and Jeff Weber. The student representative to the board is Paul Medina. Devin Moses, faculty representative to the board, will complete his third and final year on the board during the 2016-2017 school year. The new board members will begin their terms in July.

We have had meetings with the other charter schools and District 6 representatives about the potential for a mil levy request on the November ballot. Preliminary discussions have included submitting an 11.5 million dollar mil with a seven year sunset clause.

On April 13, the policy committee made up of teachers, with input from students, administrators, and parents, discussed athletic-training rules and procedures with the board. The board heard how the committee reviewed other districts’ procedures and received input from several groups. The board gave the committee suggestions and thanked the policy committee for their work. The new athletic training rules will be implemented for the 2016-2017 school year.

Please take time to review the list of many activities for the month of May. We invite you to attend even though you may not have a student involved. All of our events are open to the families and friends of University Schools.

Thank you for your outstanding support. Our students and staff are grateful for all that you do. Have a wonderful summer break, and please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions or provide additional information.

Sincerely,

Sherry Gerner

Sherry Gerner, Ed.D.
