Teachers protest order to reorganize Adams 14 district

Posted

The next installment of the dispute between the Adams 14 School District and the Colorado board of education was in the form of a Nov. 19 rally outside Adams City High School.

About 30 teachers and some state legislators gathered to protest the board’s decision to reorganize the district after years of low test scores. They waved signs and cheered as passing motorists honked their horns in protest.

The teachers union and Together Colorado, a multi-faith community organization, combined to put on the rally. A press statement called Arms Around Adams 14 “a new community campaign to stop the reorganization of Adams 14 and shift the narratives around the district.”

Earlier attempts to bring the district’s test scores up to speed either didn’t work or were cut off early, including a contract with an outside management firm earlier this year.

In March, the district recommended closing Adams City High School and reorganizing the district. The school closure isn’t on the table any longer, but reorganization is.

The state board sent the official reorganization notice to the district in October Adams 14, Mapleton Public Schools, Adams 12 Five Star Schools and 27J Schools will be part of the process. All told the state board reorganizing “will fail.”

In an October statement, the district said the notice has no impact on jobs or staff members, nor does it change “Adams 14’s commitment to providing a stable and secure learning environment for all of our students.”
