Director's Message

I hope this newsletter finds you and your family doing well.

The Colorado Department of Education has released the results of last Springs’ State assessments and assigned University Schools, Performance, which is the highest rating. The CDE also requires each school in the State to write a Unified Improvement Plan. Our plan was written by a committee of teachers and administrators from all three levels. Our focus will be on continuous improvement in the areas of: Professional Learning Communities, Standards, and Curriculum Development.

Last May, a survey was sent to University Families. The administrators carefully reviewed your responses and wrote goals to address your recommendations. Those goals have been shared with the Board of Governors and will be implemented throughout this school year. We thank you for your participation in the survey.

Some of our MLO dollars have been used to purchase the following:

curriculum – band instruments and repairs
safety/security – North Range counseling specialist
technology – interactive panel, document camera

    Please note our November calendar which lists the days school is not in session.

    Thank you, as always, for your support of University Schools and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns..
