Adams 14 Receives Apple Inc. Grant From University of Colorado Denver
Nov. 16, 2022, COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – Recently, Adams County School District 14 (Adams 14) received a generous joint grant from its partner University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver) School of Education and Human Development and Apple Inc. This grant will allow the district to offer an Instructional Technology in Education (INTE) course at Adams City High School beginning Jan. 2023, providing students a formal pathway to earning a degree in education.
Students enrolled in the course will receive concurrent enrollment credit at both Adams 14 and CU Denver, access to Apple technology devices (e.g., MacBooks, iPads, and Apple accessories), and free tuition and enrollment fees paid for by CU Denver. Additionally, the grant allows for a CU Denver faculty member to teach the initial INTE course, as well as train other individuals to teach future courses to ensure the program’s sustainability.
The INTE course is the first of a series of courses that will help prepare Adams 14 students to transition from high school to college. Moreover, not only does this grant provide a formal pathway for students to pursue a degree in education, but it also provides an opportunity for students to return and serve their community as future educators.
Adams 14 would like to express its sincere gratitude to its partner CU Denver School of Education and Human Development and Apple Inc. for this generous gift. The grant will have a positive impact on all of the district’s current and future students and community.
