Accredited with Distinction

The Lewis-Palmer School District is fully accredited by the Colorado State Department of Education and the Colorado State Board of Education under the accreditation rules that took effect on June 30, 2001. Our school district, in turn, accredits each individual school in the District and monitors accreditation on an ongoing basis. We are accredited with distinction by the state, an honor given to fewer than the top 10% of schools.

Code of Conduct for Safe Schools

Lewis-Palmer School District believes that students should be able to attend school in a safe, non-disruptive, drug-free environment. To this end, the District has adopted high, firm, and fair student behavioral standards and discipline codes of conduct. There is zero tolerance for the use or possession of weapons, drugs, or alcohol in school, on school grounds, in school vehicles, or at any school-sponsored activity.

Our District places a high priority on school safety and crisis/emergency planning.

The District strives to maintain balance by providing a safe and secure environment as well as a welcoming, nurturing, and enriching place where our children can learn.

We appreciate the help of our staff, parents, and community members in keeping our children safe at school.

Building & District Accountability Advisory Committees

Each of our schools has a Building Accountability Advisory Committee (BAAC) and representation at our District Accountability Advisory Committee (DAAC). The BAACs include parents and community members who create goals for the individual schools and report directly to the DAAC. The District’s Board of Education charges the DAAC with annual goals focused on district-wide improvements.

Parent Organizations

Each of our elementary and middle schools has a very active parent-teacher organization (PTO). These groups support our students, staff, teachers, and parents in so many important ways. From hosting school-wide social events to organizing and running the school book fairs to donating thousands of hours as parent volunteers within the classrooms and beautifying our school grounds—our parents and community members are an invaluable resource for our students’ success.

In addition, our high schools have parent groups that provide fundraising and volunteer support for student activities, events, athletics, music, drama and more.

Our PTOs and Booster Club, along with our Building and District Accountability Committees, are committed to making each school a great learning environment —a place where students, staff, teachers and parents feel comfortable and valued.
