This Committee will be charged with defining the community’s values and expectations for performance of its schools. This will include examining a variety of challenges facing NW Denver and making recommendations to: 1) improve academic performance; 2) establish clear ECE-12 feeder patterns; 3) support and inform the long-term future options at NHS; 4) address school capacity, facility utilization and continuity of programs; 5) address program offerings at existing schools including high school configuration; 6) consider options for new schools; and 7) review strategies to meet the needs of English language learners and students with special needs. These recommendations will inform any decisions made by the Board of Education on schools in Northwest Denver.
We value the numerous community groups that have put in countless hours of hard work to address these challenges in NW Denver. The Northwest Community Committee will work to connect the results of current community efforts with a comprehensive community dialogue to align the community’s desire for change to be represented in the district’s broader plan and priorities for NW Denver.
