Dear Aspen View Academy Families,
I am excited to announce that Tuesday night the Douglas County Board of Education voted unanimously to grant Aspen View Academy a five-year charter renewal! While the renewal of our charter was never really in doubt, it was sure nice to hear that the district did not have any questions or hesitations in granting our renewal. In fact, a couple board members had some very kind words to say about AVA. The DCSD School Board did not hesitate to grant us five years, which has been the maximum renewal allowed for the past few years by the district.
The charter renewal process was a long one. In fact, it started way back last April, and we worked on our application all summer. After we turned in the application, various DCSD staff visited AVA and analyzed all aspects of the school from instruction and finances to facilities and safety. After the site visit was completed, the district reviewed all our information to make an informed decision. Though the process was long, it was so rewarding to go through all our accomplishments, acknowledge everyone's hard work and reflect on how the school has grown since our last renewal.
I cannot thank our staff and board enough for their dedication and commitment to AVA. Thank you to our parents and students who support AVA and help create the amazing climate and culture we have. Finally, thank you to everyone for being a part of something very special. AVA is not just another school; we are a community and always strive for continuous improvement. Here is to another amazing five years and I am excited to see how AVA grows in those 5 years.
