Oct. 18, 2022, COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — On Monday, Adams County School District 14 (Adams 14) received notification from the Colorado Commissioner of Education requiring Adams 14, Mapleton Public Schools, Adams 12 Five Star Schools, and 27J Schools to begin the reorganization process involving Adams 14. In June 2022, all school districts passed resolutions opposing reorganization. The Colorado State Board of Education has been advised that its efforts to reorganize Adams 14 will fail.
The commissioner’s notice was required to be served upon each school district by the Colorado State Board of Education. The four school districts now must reallocate time, resources, and finances from its students and redirect them towards reorganization efforts. All the school districts agree that reorganization of Adams 14 is not in the best interest of our students, parents, community, and neighboring districts.
The notice does not impact the employment of our staff members and it does not affect Adams 14’s commitment to providing a stable and secure learning environment for all of our students.We will provide updates regarding this forced reorganization of Adams 14 as additional information becomes available.
