Charter Renewal Information

As a charter school, Stargate must periodically renew its contract with the Adams 12 Five Star School District.  During the 2018-19 school year, we are due to renew our charter. We submitted our Charter Renewal Application on September 10, 2018.  The next steps will involve tours of the school and recommendations on our application to the Adams 12 Board of Education by the District Accountability Committee and the Adams 12 staff.  Those recommendations will be made at the regular business meetings of the Adams 12 Board of Education on December 19, 2018  and January 9, 2019.  It would be wonderful to have a large presence of our Stargate Community so the Board can see how many people love having Stargate as a school of choice for their children.  You can choose to speak during the open mic at the beginning of the meeting or just be present so they can see what a strong community we have. Thank you for showing your support for our wonderful school!
