 Hello, neighbors! Mapleton students share their excitement about this new partnership!

On Tuesday, Feb. 12, the Adams 14 Board of Education selected Mapleton Public Schools to serve as their External Management Organization. 

This is an exciting next step as we seek to partner with our neighbors in providing quality public education for all children in Adams County. This recommendation will be submitted to the Colorado Department of Education and the State Board for final approval on Friday, March 1. 

A few members of Mapleton’s team had the opportunity to attend the Adams 14 Board of Education meeting. We were honored to hear support for this partnership from the Adams 14 community is not just unanimous, but as one student described it, the support is “resounding.”

Many members of the Adams 14 community, including staff, students, families, business owners and community partners, invested countless hours of their time after work and on weekends to this EMO selection process. This was no easy task. We are grateful for their dedication to this effort and share in their hope for our communities.

We welcome your questions and comments while we await final approval. Please email or call 303.853.1015.
