A message from Superintendent Sánchez
It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of our 2012-13 school year. I want to thank all of our incredible students for their dedication to academic excellence, and for doing their part, not only to secure their own powerful futures, but for helping to improve the District’s status with the Colorado Department of Education.
Thank you to our esteemed Board of Education for their unwavering support and service to Adams 14. These elected officials volunteer their time to ensure our students are provided the very best public education can offer. Thank you for your clear commitment to student success.
I also want to extend my thanks to each and every employee across Adams 14. The work you do each day is critical in preparing our students for incredible futures. Your hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed, and we cannot thank you enough for your service to our Adams 14 students.
It’s also imperative that I thank our incredible families and community partners in Adams 14. Your partnership truly provides our students, and entire District, the opportunity to grow and flourish both in school and in life.
We are thrilled to report that our District Accountability Advisory Committee (DAAC) meetings have seen a notable increase in attendance over years past! Our District families are clearly committed to student academic achievement and community collaboration to improve our systems to support our most precious resource – our children. Please make sure you join us for our final DAAC meeting of this school year, which includes a celebratory BBQ that is open to all families! We hope to see you there on May 6 at 5:45 p.m. at Adams City High School.
The District is also excited about its Superintendent’s Hispanic Parent Advisory Group, which meets each month to engage in important and timely conversations about parent involvement and supporting student academic achievement. The Advisory Group is currently working on a parent survey, designed to aggregate feedback regarding a potential series of parent classes throughout Adams 14.
We completed our revised Strategic Plan, which outlines clear strategies and tactics designed to improve academic achievement in Adams 14, and move the District in a new direction. The following goals have been developed to guide Adams 14 as it works to improve the District’s achievement status:
We have hosted several community events – with noteworthy speakers like Edward James Olmos, Carlos Cuauhtémoc Sánchez and Dr. Pedro Noguera – designed to engage our community to work together to provide the very best for each and every student in Adams 14.
In an effort to improve the District’s safety protocols, Adams 14 also participated in an all-day emergency response training exercise at Adams City High School (ACHS), along with multiple agency partners. This exercise provided a unique opportunity to test the multi-agency response to a school emergency simulation. More than 100 students and 50 staff members from Adams 14 volunteered their time to help the law enforcement and emergency agencies practice their preparedness procedures.
We are thrilled to have so much to celebrate, and we thank you again for your partnership and support. We are looking forward to our continued partnership in the 2013-14 school year!
