School Board Recognition Month
January is School Board Recognition Month in Colorado. Adams County School District 14 students, staff, and community members are honoring the Adams County School District 14 School Board members who volunteer their time to oversee our public schools.
Celebrated across the state, the annual observance is designed to build awareness and understanding of the vital role an elected school plays in providing outstanding public schools. As citizen leaders, Board members face complex and demanding challenges. This recognition is a way of saying “thank you” to our board members who contribute countless volunteer hours to ensure a quality education for Adams' 14 children.
During 2023, the Adams County School District 14 Board stayed busy overseeing several initiatives for the school district including the addition of Academies to both high schools. Board members also approved Project 5B, a plan that addresses enrollment issues, attracts new students, retains existing students, and ensures the long-term sustainability of the district.
Other Adams 14 achievements include:
More than 5,000 students are receiving a well-planned education in a safe and secure school environment.
At a 15:1 ratio, educators are giving students from all cultural, economic, and educational backgrounds a myriad of opportunities to experience success in a post-secondary path of their choosing.
Several schools demonstrated significant improvement.
The District formed a partnership with Footsteps2Brilliance to increase Bilingual Literacy in the schools and community.
A grant of $45,600 was awarded to the district from Commerce City Parks and Recreation to benefit Adams City High School sports.
