Global Leadership Academy

Phase 5, Complete!

Scope of Work

The District applied for two state BEST (Building Excellent Schools Today) grants this year to help pay for the PreK-3 and 4-8 schools but did not receive them. Mapleton plans to reapply for a BEST grant for the Global 4-8 school construction in 2018.  Construction on the PreK-3 school will begin in August 2017.

At Global Leadership Academy, woodchips and large rocks for seating have been added to the landscape. The John Dewey Student Center now has signage above the west side glass curtain wall. Signage outside classrooms, restrooms, and offices add another layer of completion to the school.

On Friday, Jan. 11, 2019, starting at 3:45 p.m., Global Leadership Academy and Global Intermediate Academy invite you to a special ribbon-cutting celebration
for their new shared learning space! This is your chance to see first-hand all the great work that's gone into the third new school building on the Broadway Campus. For more information, please call 303.853.1020.

Over on the Broadway Campus, crews at Global Leadership Academy have finished installing the front entry sidewalks and metal pergolas. The Skyview Wolverine logo has been added to the center court in the gym and crews will soon begin installing the bleachers. Global Leadership Academy will open to students in just six weeks!  

Earlier this week, the Mapleton community was invited to say goodbye to the John Dewey/Global Campus building at a special ‘Turn Out the Lights’ event. Current students offered tours of the building to former students and staff to celebrate the decades of learning that has taken place in the building. In the spring, crews will begin demolishing the John Dewey/Global Campus building to make room for Global Intermediate Academy and the Arts Building. Global Intermediate Academy is scheduled to open in the fall of 2020. Last summer, GIA was listed as an alternate to receive BEST grant funds, should another school district be unable to provide a match. In November, we learned that we will be able to apply close to $11 million in BEST funds toward the construction of Global Intermediate Academy, making it possible for us to stretch our bond dollars even further!
