Celebrating 50 years of state basketball tournaments at the Big House

Source: Oklahoma High School Sports Historical Society DID YOU KNOW? State Fair Arena was built as part of a $7.5 million bond issue passed in Nov. 1962. It also provided funds to build a downtown coliseum and modify Municipal Auditorium (now the Civic Center Music Hall). The first event held at State Fair Arena was not basketball. It was the Ice Capades, held Sept. 25-29, 1965. The first basketball games at the arena were held Dec. 1, 1965. As part of a men's college basketball doubleheader, Oklahoma City University defeated Oklahoma in their first meeting since 1918, 74-71, and St. Louis defeated Oklahoma State, 61-57. The first high school basketball game at the arena was March 10, 1966. It was a Class A girls game, and Atoka defeated Sayre 49-38. The first high school basketball state championship game at the arena was March 12, 1966. Deer Creek defeated Woodland 41-31 for the Class C girls title. Source: Oklahoma High School Sports Historical Society WHY IS IT CALLED THE BIG HOUSE? State Fair Arena got its nickname thanks to a pair of Oklahoma high school coaching legends. Charlie Heatly was coaching girls basketball at Lindsay in 1968. He was only a decade into a four-decade stint, but he'd already won one state title and would soon win another. One of his assistants that season: Joe Tunnel. Tunnel would go on to be one of the best high school football coaches in our state's history, but back then, he was only a decade into his head coaching career. Part of his duties at Lindsay included being a girls basketball assistant. A few days after Lindsay qualified for state, Tunnel walked up to Heatly and said, "Looks like you made it to the Big House." Heatly had never heard State Fair Arena called that, but it resonated with him. Over the next couple years, he'd refer to the Big House often. He'd tell his team, "We're three games from the Big House" or "Only a half left until we punch our ticket to the Big House." One day, Heatly's friend and sporting goods salesman Dick Noble told him that he'd been awarded the activities association's contract to sell apparel at the state basketball tournament. Noble asked if he had any suggestions for what to print on them; Heatly always seemed to be coming up with clever sayings. "You've made it to the Big House" was his suggestion. Noble used it, and those shirts became best-sellers. It wasn't long before teams were dreaming about playing in the Big House, fans were talking about going to the Big House and even the PA announcer was welcoming everyone to the Big House. That has remained the same for almost five decades. Editor's note: This is the story told by Heatly to legendary Oklahoman high school sports reporter Ray Soldan.

ACC football recruiting team capsules
By The Associated Press, Associated Press | Feb 3, 2016Here are the signing day capsules for Atlantic Coast Conference teams: ___ BOSTON COLLEGE Top 25 Class: No Best in class: QB Anthony Brown, from Holmdel, New Jersey, will need to come through for the Eagles if they are going to turn things around long-term. BC turned to fourth-string walk-on John Fadule after Darius Wade broke his ankle in Week 3; Jeff Smith picked up a concussion and missed a month. Best of the rest: WR Kobay White of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was a three-time all-state selection. Late addition: TE Korab Idrizi From Fort Lee, New Jersey, changed his mind after initially deciding on Rutgers. Two that got away: After defensive coordinator Don Brown left BC for Michigan, DB/QB Da'vante Cross decommitted from the Eagles. Cross will play quarterback at Virginia instead. How they'll fit in: The five offensive linemen in the recruiting class — including Eastern Illinois transfer Jimmy Lowery — could help return BC to its roots as an incubator of NFL blockers. ___ CLEMSON Top 25 Class: Yes. Best in class: Dexter Lawrence, DE, Wake Forest, North Carolina. Lawrence picked Clemson over Florida State, Florida, Georgia and Notre Dame. Best of the rest: Tavien Feaster, RB, Spartanburg, South Carolina; Tre Lamar, LB, Roswell, Georgia; Zerrick Cooper, QB, Jonesboro, Georgia; John Simpson, OL, North Charleston, South Carolina Late addition: CB Isaiah Simmons of Olanthe, Kansas, also was considering Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri and Louisville. One that got away: Defensive end Rashan Gary of Paramus, New Jersey. Gary, the nation's top prospect, had the Tigers has one of his two finalists before choosing Michigan. How they'll fit in: Lawrence will bid for immediate playing time with linemen Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd off to the NFL. Feaster has speed like former Tiger great C.J. Spiller, Swinney says, and could be the home run hitter Clemson has missed in recent years. ___ DUKE Top 25 Class: On the bubble. Best in class: Scott Bracey, WR, Richmond, Virginia. Best of the rest: Dylan Singleton, S, Lawrenceville, Georgia; Mark Birmingham, TE, Ashburn, Virginia; Brandon Hill, LB, Orangeburg, South Carolina. Late addition: Chidi Okonya, DL, Riverdale, Georgia. One that got away: Quarterback Chazz Surratt, the AP offensive player of the year in North Carolina, signed with the rival North Carolina. He had committed to Duke before switching to UNC over the summer. How they'll fit in: Duke brought in seven linemen — four offensive, three defensive — because Cutcliffe said those are the positions "you can't get short in." This class is marked by its versatility — most players play multiple positions and on both offense and defense. ___ FLORIDA STATE Top 25 class: Yes Best in class: Levonta Taylor, CB, Virginia Beach, Virginia. He was the consensus top-ranked cornerback prospect in the country and committed early enough that he helped attract others to Florida State. He also could end up as a kick or punt returner. At 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, Tyler lacks in size but Fisher said he has a unique skill set, including great ball skills. Best of the rest: Malik Henry, QB, Long Beach, California. Fisher usually has true freshmen run the scout team but the 6-foot-3, 184-pound Henry has enough athleticism and is an early enrollee, meaning he could challenge for the starting spot during spring practice. Late addition: Shevar Manuel, DT, Bradenton, Florida. Manuel had originally committed to Florida but was wavering. Florida State remained in contact with Manuel and convinced him to flip at the last minute. One that got away: Safety Jamel Cook was leaning toward Florida State but the Miami native ended up going to Southern California. How they'll fit in: With the signings, Florida State will have 18 offensive linemen on scholarship when preseason practices begin August. Fisher said that not only benefits the offensive line in terms of building a rotation but should help guys develop faster. ___ GEORGIA TECH Top 25 Class: No Best in class: Jordan Woods, DE, Citra, Florida. Woods picked Georgia Tech over Florida, Tennessee and Miami. Best of the rest: Parker Braun, OL, Hallsview, Texas; Jay Jones, QB, McCalla, Alabama; Xavier Gantt, RB, Buford, Georgia; Dedrick Mills, RB, Waycross, Georgia. Late addition: CB Ajani Kerr of Powder Springs, Georgia, also was considering Central Michigan and Kennesaw State, among other schools. One that got away: Safety Romeo Finley of Niceville, Florida, listed Georgia Tech as his leader before making a late switch to Miami. How they'll fit in: Johnson recruited for immediate help at wide receiver. Stephen Dolphus (6-5, 200) of Westside High in Macon, Georgia, was compared to former Georgia Tech receiver Stephen Hill. The other receivers in the class are Jalen Camp of Cumming, Georgia and Jair Hawkins-Anderson of Suwanee, Georgia. ___ LOUISVILLE Top 25 Class: No Best in class: Jawon Pass, QB, Columbus, Georgia. The Cardinals bolstered one of their strengths with the 6-foot-4 U.S. Army-All America quarterback, who ranked as the nation's 191st overall prospect by Scout. Pass may not supplant sophomore Lamar Jackson, who became Louisville's starter last season, but he joins his brother Khane, a safety who signed last year. Best of the rest: Dez Fitzpatrick, WR, Farmington Hills, Michigan. Fitzpatrick committed to Louisville more than a year ago, reconsidered this winter before sticking with his original choice after an official visit last weekend. "He sure made us work hard," Petrino said of the recruitment. The Cardinals beat out Nebraska and Indiana for the 6-2 receiver ranked in the top 220 nationally by Rivals and Scout. Fitzpatrick is one of four receivers signed. Late addition: London Iakopo, S, Long Beach (California) City College. Iakopo is one of two four-star safeties in the class along with incoming freshman P.J. Blue, and could see early action at the back of the Cardinals' defense. "He's very, very mature and he's going to give us a lot of leadership," Petrino said of Iakopo. One that got away: Rodjay Burns, Louisville, Kentucky. Ohio State lured Burns, a two-way standout, away from his hometown in the final week. A finalist for Kentucky's Mr. Football, Burns had 14 touchdowns as a receiver and four interceptions on defense as a high school senior. How they'll fit in: The Cardinals have seamlessly worked in youngsters and transfers on defense without missing a beat, so it wouldn't be shocking if their newcomers became contributors right away. Pass might be Louisville's quarterback of the future, the same thing that was said about Jackson and Reggie Bonnafon before both emerged as starting signal-callers. ___ MIAMI Top 25 Class: No. Best in class: Sam Bruce, WR, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The 5-foot-8 star from longtime powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas High is considered to be a slot receiver, but the Hurricanes see him getting to the outside as well. Bruce seemed to be wavering on his commitment in recent weeks, but he was the one that Miami fans did not want to see get away. "Very explosive player," Richt said. Best of the rest: Jack Allison, QB, Parrish, Florida and Shaquille Quarterman, LB, Orange Park, Florida. Allison is the heir apparent to Brad Kaaya as Miami's starting quarterback and jumped at the chance to enroll at what he long considered his dream school. And Quarterman — along with fellow mid-year linebacker enrollees Zach McCloud and Michael Pinckney — gives Miami immediate depth at that position and should be in contention for playing time in the fall. Late addition: Ahmmon Richards, WR, Wellington, Florida. He was a Miami commit before the Hurricanes fired Al Golden, and then re-opened his process to the point where some thought he would get away. One that got away: Tyler Byrd, CB, Naples, Florida. The consensus four-star prospect flipped his commitment to Tennessee — where former Miami interim coach Larry Scott is now on staff — on Tuesday night. Byrd was considered someone who would have been a key performer in 2016 for the Hurricanes. How they'll fit in: There's clearly spots to fill, and Richt didn't get all of Miami's needs taken care of in his first class. But there's a slew of talent returning, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. Getting that trio of linebackers in early might be critical, and having Miami legacies like TE Michael Irvin Jr., S Jeff James (Edgerrin James' nephew) and DE Pat Bethel (son of former Miami TE Randy Bethel) in this class won't hurt. ___ NORTH CAROLINA Top 25 Class: Yes. Best in class: Kyree Campbell, DT, Woodbridge, Virginia. Best of the rest: Chazz Surratt, QB, Denver, North Carolina; Jay-Jay McCargo, OL, Alexandria, Virginia; Tomon Fox, DE, Lawrenceville, Georgia. Late addition: DB Patrice Rene (Alexandria, Virginia) originally committed to Rutgers but flipped to UNC in January. One that got away: WR Nate Craig-Myers (Tampa, Florida) chose Auburn over UNC on Wednesday. How they'll fit in: After a defensive turnaround last year under coordinator Gene Chizik, the Tar Heels loaded up on defense with 16 signees — including seven defensive backs and four linebackers — after losing seniors in the unit's back seven. ___ NORTH CAROLINA STATE Top 25 Class: No. Best in class: Thaddeus Moss, TE, Charlotte. Best of the rest: Kelvin Harmon, WR, Palmyra, New Jersey. Late addition: Harmon, originally a South Carolina recruit who decommitted amid the Gamecocks' coaching change to Will Muschamp. One that got away: Dexter Lawrence, DT, Wake Forest, signed with Clemson. How they'll fit in: Doeren says he'd like to redshirt all but about six players. Moss and Harmon seem to be extreme talents who should have a chance to play soon. Frazier should be strong enough to make a quick impact. ___ PITTSBURGH Top 25 Class: On the bubble Best in class: Damar Hamlin, DB, Pittsburgh. Blazing fast with what Narduzzi called "the best feet, hips and most athletic corners you can recruit." Best of the rest: DL Keyshon Camp (Lakeland, Florida.), chose Pitt after originally committing to USC. RB George Hill (Youngstown, Ohio). Late addition: Rashad Weaver, DL, Cooper City (Fla.) One that got away: RB Miles Sanders (Woodland Hills) signed with Penn State. How they'll fit in: The beauty for Narduzzi is he's not quite sure. Though Whitehead made an immediate impact at safety last year — he was named the ACC Rookie of the Year after leading Pitt with 99 tackles — but he also saw snaps on offense, averaging 10 yards every time he touched the ball. There are plenty of prospects who could get a shot at similar double duty going forward. ___ SYRACUSE Top 25 Class: No. Best in class: Moe Neal, ATH, Gastonia, North Carolina. The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Neal was the nation's 43rd-ranked athlete in 247Sports.com's composite rankings. He scored 103 TDs in high school. Best of the rest: DE Jaquwan Nelson. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Nelson is rated three stars and the No. 54 weak-side defensive end in the Class of 2016 by 247Sports. Late addition: Devin Butler, who had previously committed to Maryland, decided Wednesday morning to go with the Orange. The 6-foot, 185-pound Butler also plans to join the Syracuse track and field team. One that got away: Three-star OG Stewart Reese of Fort Pierce Central High School in Florida. The 6-foot-6, 333-pound Reese, rated the No. 19 offensive guard in the Class of 2016 by 247Sports.com's composite rankings, opted for Mississippi State of the Southeast Conference on Monday. Syracuse, Reese's other finalist, had visited him twice in the past three weeks in addition to hosting him on an official visit in mid-January. How they'll fit in: The big story for the Orange is how quickly Babers can install his offense and who he picks to lead it. Sophomore Eric Dungey, despite at least one concussion and several other hard hits to the head last fall, succeeded Terrel Hunt after the senior starter's college career ended with a torn Achilles in the season opener. ___ VIRGINIA Top 25 Class: No. Best in class: Tre Harbison, RB, Shelby, North Carolina. Ran for 5,770 yards and 100 touchdowns in a high school career that ended with back-to-back state championships and a 32-0 record his last two seasons. Best of the rest: Hasise Dubois, WR, Irvington, New Jersey. A 6-3 receiver who caught 97 passes for 1,976 yards and 26 touchdowns during his high school career and had nine interceptions as a defensive back. Late addition: Trysten Hill, DL, Lee, Florida. One that got away: Laderrian Wilson, RB, Kissimmee, Florida (went to Maryland). How they'll fit in: Mendenhall takes a unique approach to redshirting and want ___ VIRGINIA TECH Top 25 Class: No. Best in class: Evans. He threw for 395 yards per game with 38 touchdown passes and just three interceptions last season, and has already enrolled at Virginia Tech. A dual-threat, he also ran for more than 400 yards. Best of the rest: Khalil Ladler, CB, Stone Mountain, Georgia. A four-star recruit who spent the past season recovering from a torn ACL. Late addition: Eron Carter, LB, Palatka, Florida was being recruited heavily by the service academies, Foster said, describing the 6-2, 230-pounder as "more of a thumper-type guy." One that got away: None. How they'll fit in: With Fuente bringing what Hokies fans hope will be the high-powered offense they have long craved, the quarterback battle will be crucial to how quickly they are able to meet those expectations. Evans and Joshua Jackson join three holdovers — Brenden Motley, Dwayne Lawson and Chris Durkin, and so the winter, spring and summer will be critical times. ___ WAKE FOREST Top 25 Class: No. Best in class: Sulaiman Kamara, DT, Richmond, Virginia. Best of the rest: Byrd; Taleni Suhren, OT, Charlotte; Emmanuel Walker, DE, Holly Hill, South Carolina. Late addition: None. All but a few players have been committed since last September. One that got away: LB Riley Cole, who decommitted late from Alabama and signed late in the afternoon with South Alabama. How they'll fit in: For Wake Forest, the better question is WHEN they'll fit in. The Demon Deacons are at their best when they're patiently redshirting players and allowing them to develop. But during the past few years, they simply didn't have enough bodies to do that, a big reason why they were one of the nation's most inexperienced teams in 2015. Clawson says he would prefer to redshirt 80 percent of the incoming freshmen.

The Oklahoman's high school football predictions for Week 7
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 14, 2015As Week 7 of the high school football season arrives, playoff races — and more importantly, the chase for district championships — start to take shape. We've got a No. 1 vs. No. 2 battle in Class 6A-II, with second-ranked Bartlesville visiting Tulsa Washington on Friday. And a 1 vs. 3 in Class 5A, with top-ranked Lawton MacArthur hosting Ardmore, also on Friday.

OSU football: With growing momentum in the Lone Star State, might Oklahoma State be closing the gap on having more Texas-born talent than the Longhorns?Sep 25, 2015
OSU travels to Austin this Saturday with 66 native Texans on its roster — more than any other Football Bowl Subdivision program outside the Lone Star State.
OSU football: With growing momentum in the Lone Star State, might Oklahoma State be closing the gap on having more Texas-born talent than the Longhorns?
By Kyle Fredrickson | Sep 25, 2015AUSTIN, Texas — When offensive tackle Zach Crabtree committed to Oklahoma State back in May 2012, those close to the Mansfield, Texas, native might have questioned the decision. Even his high school coach, Jeff Hulme, who was only half-joking when prodding Crabtree about his college choice: “You're a Texas boy. Why would you leave the state of Texas? You were raised here. You've never been outside the state of Texas. What are you doing?” “I wanted to be a Cowboy,” Crabtree said. “I love this place.” He's not alone. OSU travels to Austin this Saturday with 66 native Texans on its roster — more than any other Football Bowl Subdivision program outside the Lone Star State. According to a Rivals database, though, only 19 of those players received recruiting interest from the Longhorns. From that group, only two received Texas scholarship offers: true freshmen defensive linemen Darrion Daniels and Louis Brown. Some of the Cowboys' most notable Texas talents barely caught a whiff of interest from the Longhorns. “I didn't talk to them at all,” Crabtree said. “They didn't really stick out their neck or anything for me,” said safety Tre Flowers, of Converse, Texas. “I never got offered by Texas,” said Emmanuel Ogbah, of Houston. That last one probably stings for Texas fans. It also begs an interesting question: Might OSU be closing the gap on having more Texas-born talent than the Longhorns? The answer depends on how you define success. Ogbah is the lone player from either team who is considered a sure-fire first-round prospect in this upcoming NFL Draft. However, Texas holds a decided edge in recent years compared to OSU in that category. From 2010 to 2015, 17 native Texans on the Longhorns' roster have been selected. The Cowboys had six native Texans drafted in that same span. But in terms of wins and losses, the Cowboys hold the advantage. From 2011 through three games this season, with a starting roster composed of mostly Texas-born players, OSU has won 40 games. The Longhorns have won 32. “Right about the time (Texas) started recruited me was when Colt McCoy was leaving,” said quarterback J.W. Walsh, of Denton, Texas, who received interest but no scholarship offer from the Longhorns. “They still kind of had that Texas-of-old in them. But you could definitely tell OSU was on the rise.” The Cowboys' recruiting message of an on-the-rise program to Texas prospects continues today, as OSU coach Mike Gundy says 100 percent of recruiting resources are somehow used in the state. Even then, Texas high school players who receive scholarship offers from the Longhorns remain difficult to land. “We offer 30 of them, and 28 of them nine months later, we're off their radar if Texas offers,” Gundy said. That is little concern to Gundy and the coaching staff, though, as the program prides itself in discovering and developing under-recruited Texas talent. Of its six native Texans selected in the NFL Draft since 2010, none received scholarship offers from the Longhorns out of high school, according to Rivals. “We like the players that we have here,” Gundy said. “Sometimes we take players that other people don't think are up to par to play at this level, for whatever reason.” It all adds up to what should be an emotional matchup 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. “I know it means a little bit more,” defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer said. “You love to say, ‘Hey, you play all of them like they're the same.' But it's just not. I know that a lot of them are going to be juiced up because of that. What we've got to do is make them realize that can't effect what's happening between your ears.” OVERALL RECORDS 2011-PRESENT OSU: 40-15 UT: 32-23 2006-2010 UT: 50-15 OSU: 44-21 RIVALS RECRUITING CLASS RANKINGS 2015 UT: 12 OSU: 38 2014 UT: 20 OSU: 27 2013 UT: 24 OSU: 36 2012 UT: 2 OSU: 32 2011 UT: 3 OSU: 28 TEXAS NATIVES SELECTED IN NFL DRAFT OSU 2015: None 2014: 1-8 Justin Gilbert (The Woodlands) 2013: None 2012: 6-190 Markelle Martin (Wichita Falls) 2011: 4-115 Kendall Hunter (Tyler) 2010: 1-6 Russell Okung (Fort Bend), 1-24 Dez Bryant (Galveston County), 5-137 Perrish Cox (Waco) TOTAL: 6 UT 2015: 1-32 Malcom Brown (Brenham), 5-144 Mykkele Thompson (San Antonio), 6-200 Quandre Diggs (Angleton) 2014: None 2013: 1-15 Kenny Vacccaro (Brownwood), 3-78 Marquise Goodwin (Lubbock), 4-103 Alex Okafor (Dallas) 2012: 4-119 Keenan Robinson* (Plano), 6-204 Emmanuel Acho (Dallas), 7-215 Kheeston Randle (Beaumont) 2011: 2-34 Aaron Williams (Austin), 3-95 Curtis Brown (Gilmer), 4-103 Sam Acho* (Dallas), 5-164 Chykie Brown (Houston) 2010: 1-4 Earl Thomas (Orange), 2-43, Sergio Kindle* (Dallas), 3-84 Jordan Shipley (Temple), 4-131 Roddrick Muckelroy (Longview) TOTAL: 17 * Player born outside Texas, but played high school football in the state.

Back to School: Pikes Peak region districts offer new programs, new buildings
Debbie Kelley, Associated Press | Aug 3, 2015That six-letter "s" word, school, isn't just around the corner. It's here. Two of the Pikes Peak region's 17 public school districts, Falcon School District 49 and Ellicott School District 22, resume classes this week. A few more start back next week, with most in session by the third week in August. "There's always just a new energy at the beginning of a school year. We're excited to welcome new families and returning families and look forward to a new start," said Jed Bowman, superintendent of Woodland Park School District RE-2 and president of the Colorado Association of Superintendents and Senior Administrators. Three districts - Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8, Hanover School District 28 and Miami-Yoder School District JT-60 - begin the 2015-2016 year with new superintendents. "Options" is an operative word in 21st century education, with many districts giving more and more choices of how, when and where students learn. Concurrent enrollment, in which students can earn college credits while in high school, remains popular, and vocational and technical education is resurging. Three districts, Widefield School District 3, Harrison School District 2 and Lewis-Palmer School District 38, are updating their websites, and two, Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 and Edison School District 54-JT, are expanding buildings. On the state level, Colorado lawmakers reduced some requirements for standardized assessments, which "should make a real difference to parents," said Dana Smith, spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Education. New testing that started last year expanded science and social studies tests to 11th and 12th graders, which led to criticism and concerns about over-testing. Two testing windows for English language arts and math have been shortened to one, and test lengths have decreased by about 90 minutes for all grades. For the most part, high school students will only take standardized English and math tests through the ninth grade. Schools will rotate social studies testing, once every three years. Lawmakers also decided that last year's tests won't count toward school accountability or teacher evaluations. That means there is a one-year hold on accreditation ratings and types of school plans the state assigns based on academic performance. Although the state allows districts to pilot new testing, officials from local districts said they are exploring what that might mean. This year, local school boards must adopt graduation requirements that either meet or exceed state guidelines adopted in 2013. Students who will graduate in 2021 are the first to be impacted by the new rules. Here are other developments in the Pikes Peak region: Academy School District 20 It's the year of expanded online learning in D-20. With a new virtual school, kindergartners through seniors can do online education through the district. Earlier this year, D-20 acquired Colorado Calvert Academy, which had operated as a charter school for five years in Colorado Springs. It's now called Academy Calvert K-8 Online School. Up to 200 students in kindergarten through eighth grade can enroll, said Elizabeth Davis, principal. Nine staff members puts the student-teacher ratio at 1-to-30, she said. "One of the hallmarks is that the school is kept intentionally small so we can provide that high level of teacher-student interaction and create that feeling that students have access to their teachers when they need them," Davis said. Elementary and middle school students will have individualized learning plans using Calvert Education's curriculum, which is offered nationwide and overseas. Students also can go to the "blended-learning center" at 3475 Hampton Park Drive for personal support and interaction with classmates during science experiments, art lessons, tutoring and guidance. "It's a national model for what blended learning looks like; it allows for the freedom students want and provides an extra layer of face-to-face support that's still necessary," Davis said. Also new, all D-20 high school students can take online or hybrid courses through the Extended Studies at Academy Online program. Students can extend their schedules with hybrid and fully online courses that they may not be able to fit in or access at their regular high school. For most classes, dual high school and University of Colorado credits will be available. D-20 teachers will help students learn in the non-traditional environment. The Academy Online High School also is embarking on a pilot program for ninth graders. Students will have individualized curriculum with collaborative problem-solving activities. They also will conduct personal inquiry investigations under the supervision of D-20 teachers. The blended program combining on-campus activities and at-home work will operate out of two modular classrooms at Pine Creek High. Kindergarten through eighth grade homeschoolers will be able to take new math and English language arts curriculum with academic support through the D-20 Home School Academy at the administration building, 1110 Chapel Hills Drive. Students also will receive instruction in visual arts and music. Parents will receive model lessons to support their student's learning goals and access English and math curriculum at no cost, said Nanette Anderson district spokeswoman. D-20 has seven new principals and two administrators, Bob Barros, executive director for special education; and Maureen Lang, director for professional learning. With the addition of the online school, enrollment is expected to be up over last year's 24,578 pupil count. Calhan School District RJ-1 "A lot" is going on in Calhan, said Superintendent Linda Miller. The school building for preschool through 12th graders soon will get a new roof. The district has been awarded its third Building Excellent Schools Today, or BEST, grant from the state, which helps fund capital improvements. The roof replacement will cost about $1.2 million, Miller said. Two previous BEST grants paid for air conditioning, energy efficient lighting and security upgrades. "We've been really lucky to get that help from the state," Miller said. Another grant from the Colorado Department of Education enables high school students to take Advanced Placement English, math, science and social studies. "It's something we haven't done in the past," Miller said, "and it gives high school students the opportunity to take advanced course work on our campus." The one-to-one iPad initiative that started last school year in partnership with Apple is expanding so every middle and high school student will be issued a personal electronic device. "Students are so well-versed in technology that this is a learning tool they're very comfortable with," Miller said. "We'll save on paper, no doubt - teachers can electronically submit their assignments and students can send the work directly to the teacher." Also expanding is the Parenting Matters program that kicked off last year for elementary school parents, who learned about literacy, fluency and reading with their child at home. This year, secondary school parents will learn about Internet safety, social media and other topics pertaining to teens. Enrollment should hold steady at about 475 preschoolers through seniors. Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 Cheyenne Mountain High School students will attend classes amid campus construction. The district's $42.5 million project to update its high school campus will continue throughout the school year, and Superintendent Walt Cooper said learning should continue as normal despite the inconvenience. The district will segregate the students and the construction, creating alternate pathways, ensuring student safety and minimizing any "construction zone" feeling in classrooms, Cooper said, adding that "one of the major focuses will be keeping interruptions to a minimum." Construction is expected to be finished in late 2016, but the parking lot renovation will be done before students start school this month and the baseball field will be completed by spring. To eliminate confusion, the district has released logistics and traffic plans for various periods of time through 2017. The fall plan includes clearly marked routes for construction delivery, pedestrian traffic and student drop-off and pick-up. The map also identifies construction zones, barricades and construction site fences. When finished, students will be able to use a main entrance and access any part of the building, uniting the several disjointed buildings on the high school campus. The construction will physically close the campus, but the environment will remain relatively open, so students will be able to leave for lunch, open periods or appointments. Administrators, however, will have more control over the high school campus. In the past, closing down the campus was difficult, even in the event of a security risk, and there was no real way to keep track of students throughout the day. Although eliminating open lunch or requiring students to sign in and out are not in the district's plan, they are options available to administrators. "We'll be able to have a very clear picture of who's coming and going, and we'll be able to secure the campus," Cooper said. The elementary schools and the junior high also are undergoing some construction, but nothing as dramatic as at the high school. Of the $45 million bond issue voters approved in November, $2.5 million was allocated to projects that will impact the entire district, including lighting, electrical and security system upgrades, boiler replacements and playground upgrades to accommodate children with disabilities. Elementary and middle schoolers won't see the construction - the changes in their buildings will occur during school breaks. The district also is considering a new elementary school literacy program, which Cooper emphasized is more all-encompassing than a reading curriculum. This process will not be quick, though: "We spend a lot of time and money when we go through a curriculum adoption process," Cooper said. D-12 has two new principals - Stacy Aldridge at Skyway Elementary and Michael Norris at Gold Camp Elementary. Enrollment has grown 13 percent since 2010, and is anticipated to top last year's count of 5,148 students. Colorado Springs School District 11 Six elementary schools in District 11 will add bus service when school re-starts. A desire to shorten walking distances by half a mile from home to school led to a $1.7 million expansion of the district's transportation program. In all, 32 new routes across elementary, middle and high schools are being added, and some existing routes are being extended. That will qualify an additional 1,600 students to ride a bus, which is free in D-11. The district is focusing on getting students to the handshake at graduation by adding value to their education, said Devra Ashby, spokeswoman. District training to help teachers collaborate and reboot "personal learning communities" has started. The new direction in professional development is based on teachers reflecting on what they've learned, providing feedback to one another and sharing best practices, Ashby said. A new literacy program, "Wonders," will roll out in all elementary schools to "put them all on the same page as far as literacy learning, rather than having different approaches to reading and writing," Ashby said. As part of a "Vision 2030" drive, district leaders are considering asking voters to fund a bond or mill levy override on the 2016 ballot. School staff and parent organizations gave input on needs; community comments also will be solicited. Ashby said the responses will be used to determine what, if anything, will be presented to the board for consideration to address future facilities, staffing, programs, technology and other needs. A "Did You Know" website is underway. Schools that have had declining enrollment or are struggling academically are under intensive plans to turn them around. "Some need marketing plans, some need curb appeal enhancements, some need one-on-one work with systems' improvements," Ashby said. Graduates of 2015 collectively earned $30 million in scholarships, which Ashby said was above the usual $20 million and the highest amount in five years. Six new principals join D-11 this year. In administration, Sherry Kalbach is a new K-12 executive director, one of three in that position. She had been principal at Sabin Middle School. Patricia Reitwiesner has been hired as director of grants. D-11 enrollment has declined by nearly 4 percent in the past five years and is expected to take another dip this year to just above 27,000 students. Cripple Creek-Victor School District RE-1 In his second year as superintendent, Les Lindauer is bringing back a few defunct programs and introducing two new vocational training tracks. An alternative education program for students who have dropped out of school in recent years is returning. About 20 students are expected to participate. "We've lost students for various, and we want them to come back and finish their education," Lindauer said. Students will meet in two classrooms in the lower level of the junior-senior high school. "The program will be different from the conventional classroom, with a lot of hands-on activities," Lindauer said. Also making a comeback this fall are four Advanced Placement classes in English, math, science and social studies. "We had them years ago, and we're very excited to be able to bring them back," Lindauer said. Middle and high school students can enroll in design manufacturing and consumer and family studies. Each class, held in a shop environment with power tools and a computer-aided drafting and design program, can accommodate about 18 students. The district also has lowered its graduation requirements. It has had the highest in the state, Lindauer said, at 30 semester credits. That has dropped to 22, starting with incoming freshman. Doing so, Lindauer said, will free up students' schedules so they can take the new AP classes and vocational courses. "We looked at a lot of school districts' requirements, and we were way over the top," he said. "We're not lowering our standards, just our requirements." A proposal to expand the school-based health center for students to a community health center is under consideration. "We know there's a tremendous need in the community for health services," Lindauer said. Enrollment is projected to hold steady, with 350 kindergarten through 12th graders and another 50 preschoolers. Edison School District 54-JT Architectural engineering plans are getting underway for a 33,000-square-foot expansion of the middle school and high school building in Yoder. Voters in November approved a $275,000 bond issue, which the district used to secure a $15 million BEST grant from the state. "We're a growing district, which is a good problem to have. But we're out of space," said Superintendent Pat Bershinsky. More classrooms, a science lab, an autism room, a special education room, shop space, a gymnasium and a preschool will be added to the building, which opened in 1922. A 1960 addition that includes a commons area, gymnasium and locker rooms will be demolished. Enrollment has grown nearly 14 percent in the past five years, which Bershinsky said is due to academic improvement. Last year, 54-JT, the region's smallest district with 240 students, earned the state's highest ranking for performance and growth. "Our high academic record has attracted a lot of students," he said. "We're going to try to continue student improvement daily. That's our job." The expansion should be completed in July 2017 and eventually will lead to the schools all being connected. Ellicott School District 22 Improvements are happening throughout D-22. Additional staff for early interventions will help identify kindergarten through sixth grade students who have academic problems and need extra help with math and reading. Accelerated students also will get a boost with more staff for the gifted and talented program. A one-on-one technical initiative that started last year in the middle school with each student having an iPad will carry over to the high school this year. Each high school student will receive a laptop for school work. "We're building the program to integrate technology a lot more into our curriculum and expand that experience for our students," said Superintendent Pat Cullen. Advanced Placement courses in language arts, math, science and social studies also will be available for high school students. Vocational education is growing, too. Courses in woodworking and business are being added; the district has had a welding program. Students can receive dual high school and college credit from Pikes Peak Community College. "We're building on some of the things we've done in the past to improve curriculum and instruction, along with student achievement," Cullen said. A ball field has been renovated, and the classroom for students in the severe-needs program, which districts from around the area participate in, has been expanded to accommodate more students. Cullen expects nine students this year, up from seven. District-wide enrollment should remain stable, at nearly 1,100 students. Falcon School District 49 Stability seems to have settled in at D-49. Chief Education Officer Peter Hilts has his third annual contract in hand, the longest for the same person to hold the head position in more than a decade. Also for the first time in a while, the school board has had the same five members for two years in a row. "Many of the positive things I see happening are related to that board stability and commitment to strong governance," Hilts said. The focus since Hilts took over, primary literacy and "49 Pathways" to graduation, is continuing, with each school having a certain theme and new choices being added. New this school year is training to improve systems and procedures. D-49 has hired a Denver-based nonprofit, Rocky Mountain Performance Excellence, to help improve performance. Hilts said enrollment, for example, has been streamlined and is more efficient. A mill levy override voters approved in November is paying for a district-wide patrol officer for all the schools. The money also gave teachers a "significant" boost in salaries, with another supplement to come for teachers whose salaries were frozen during the recession. More technology for students, including iPads and Chromebooks, is available. At Falcon High School, every student will get a Kindle, an e-reader. D-49's board is considering refinancing general bond debt and paying it off in 2016, to save nearly $16 million. Also in discussion is the possibility of presenting another mill levy override to voters next year to pay for school expansions and renovations. Voters this November will consider whether to change board representation from five at-large seats to representation by geographical boundaries. Crowding of school buildings is again a concern. Hilts said enrollment is capped at some buildings, with students enrolling after capacity being bused to another school. Enrollment this school year is expected to grow by another 1,000 students to just under 21,000. Pupil count has increased 33 percent since 2010. Over the summer, a new Peak Partners Initiative launched to develop a relationship with community leaders who don't have a connection to the district. Monthly meetings with 25 community leaders address school finance, facilities' plans, the new career academy and other aspects of D-49, with the idea that those who "graduate" from the leadership institute will volunteer in D-49. The school board also recently approved an application for authorization of a new charter school that will open in the fall of 2016. James Irwin Charter Schools, which has two elementary schools, one high school and one middle school in Colorado Springs, plans to develop a technical and trades academy. It will be housed at Patriot Learning Center, an alternative high school and middle school at 11990 Swingline NE Road in Peyton. Hilts said he approached officials at James Irwin after its attempt to open in another local school district fell through. "They are an entrepreneurial collaborative, and they wanted to work with us because of our history of innovation," he said. D-49 is one of nine districts in the state to have "innovation" status, meaning school leaders are allowed to make more decisions at the school level and try new practices. Hilts expects 200 to 400 students to enroll in the technical and trades academy, which will allow students to earn college credits while earning their high school diploma. Two D-49 "zones" of schools have new leaders. Andy Franko, who had been the head of school at Banning Lewis Ranch Academy, is the new iConnect Zone superintendent. He replaces Kim McClelland, who has moved on to executive director of Colorado Digital BOCES. The Falcon Zone's new superintendent is Julia Roark, who came from the Aspen School District. Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 Keith Owen left the Department of Education as assistant commissioner of education to return to the district level as superintendent at Fountain-Fort Carson. He began July 1 and replaces Cheryl Serrano, who retired after a 27-year career with D-8. Owen said when he accepted the job in the spring that one of his goals is to "continue to build upon the great tradition of excellence," adding that D-8 has a "fabulous reputation." With about 75 percent of its students having a military connection, the district works closely with Fort Carson to ease the stress of military transfers, family deployments and reintegration so students can focus on their education, said Ty Valentine, director of human resources. New this year, a preschool, Conrad Early Learning Center, will open north of the district's administration building at 10665 Jimmy Camp Road in Fountain. It will start with eight classrooms and professional learning space but has the capacity to expand to at least 12 classrooms, Valentine said. The new building is dedicated to long-time D-8 teacher Yevonne Conrad, who spent her career teaching youngsters and dedicating her efforts to high-quality preschool and kindergarten instruction. All 12 building principals are returning. Seven new assistant principals have been hired. Although Fort Carson is expected to lose about 365 soldiers from a cut of 40,000 soldiers nationwide, district officials project an enrollment growth of 158 students, for a total of 8,278. Hanover School District 28 Grant Schmidt, who became superintendent in July in this district south of Fountain, has hit the ground running. Creating a district-wide strategic plan and facilities plan, with community and staff input, is on the agenda for this school year, along with developing standard operating procedures. In coming months, new policies or revisions to policies will be adopted to meet new legislation regarding student discipline and safety, portability of new staff, Internet and electronic device usage, curriculum and assessments. "The main goal for our district is to relentlessly meet the academic and socio-emotional needs of all students," said Schmidt, who also is continuing his job as principal at Prairie Winds Elementary School in D-28. In June, the Hanover school board voted to appoint Ofelia Gonzalez to fill the open position left by Cathie Wolff until the November election. Also over the summer, the district completed some improvements to its buildings and added a keyless entry system at both schools. Two new school buses are on the horizon. Enrollment is expected to remain around 260 students. Harrison School District 2 Sand Creek Elementary and Carmel Middle School were accepted as International Baccalaureate candidates and will start the program in the fall. Superintendent Andre Spencer said he anticipates that in 18 to 24 months, the schools will be "full-blown" IB. "It focuses on an international education perspective and looks at education from a global standpoint," Spencer said. These will be the district's first schools to adopt the IB program. "We want that exposure for every student at these schools," Spencer said, adding that the plan is to extend it in the future. Two elementary schools, Turman and Stratmoor Hills, are trying a year-round calendar and started classes July 8. Decreasing loss of knowledge over the summer break was among the reasons. More Advanced Placement courses for high school students are being offered, going from five to 19, Spencer said. That has more than quadrupled the number of students enrolled in the programs at the district's two high schools. Not only does D-2 have concurrent enrollment with Pikes Peak Community College, but also the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Colorado State University-Pueblo. The latter starts in the junior year of high school, and after graduating, students enter college as a sophomore. Thirty-nine students participated in the SoColo REACH Summer Institute at UCCS. Students took a freshman-level college course, Academic Fitness, and earned three college credits and one high school elective credit for completing the course. A revamped district website that rolled out in July features a "Let's Talk" link that allows anyone to send questions or messages to D-2 officials. Answers will be sent within 24 hours, Spencer said. A first-ever D-2 teachers' job fair held in the spring drew 125 potential candidates. "We wanted people not just looking for a teaching position but specifically for a teaching position at Harrison," Spencer said. D-2 hired 152 teachers for this school year, down from 176 last year. Enrollment should continue its slight growth pattern and be up a little from last year's 11,441 students. Lewis-Palmer School District 38 An emphasis on educating the whole child and the 21st century learner, creating a safe environment and building community support are leading D-38 into the year. Establishing a "wellness team" in every school will get underway at back-to-school nights, and a district wellness group will offer instruction on mindfulness, healthy eating and movement in the classroom. The program is aligned with the Colorado Action for Healthy Kids. Prairie Winds Elementary earned a $500 grant for its wellness initiatives. Internet bandwidth for faster performance and improvements to technology infrastructure was expanded over the summer at the middle and high schools. The result: more classroom devices - cell phones, tablets and laptops, can access the Internet at any given time. "We will continue our improvement efforts to enhance the technology foundation and the instructional toolkit for all our teachers and students," said Liz Walhof, director of instruction and information technology. The old Palmer Lake Elementary School Library, which has a four-season sunroom, is undergoing a $56,000 renovation. Flexible, kid-friendly spaces that adjust to accommodate adult learners, such as shelving on rolling casters, new technology and energy-efficient windows are part of the plan. A parent group, Friends of Julie, named for former Palmer Lake Elementary School principal Julie Jadomski, who retired in May and is now a school board member, donated money to the project. "It's exciting. It's getting a whole new look," said Julie Stephen, D-38 spokeswoman. Summer maintenance projects have included replacing 1,000 feet of aging sewer lines, updating water heating systems, installing a back-up generator, replacing a cooling tower, updating electrical systems, installing classroom projectors and adding food service sinks. The Project Lead the Way biomedical sciences program that was added at Lewis-Palmer High last school year had 80 students enrolled in the introductory course, principles of biomedical sciences, according to principal Sandi Brandl. This year, a second-level course is being offered, human body systems, which Brandl said will have more than 90 students. The plan is to add a third-year course, medical interventions, and a fourth year, biomedical innovation. The district's Business Advisory Council will host a first-ever Career Awareness Fair in the fall for middle and high school students. While D-38 has offered college fairs for years, Stephen said this is the first time for an event focusing on career opportunities. The Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce, Tri-Lakes Cares, Integrity Bank and Trust and other local businesses will have representatives talking about lines of work and provide tips on resumes, interview skills and other aspects of job hunting. D-38 enrollment is expected to increase by 20 or so students over last year's October count of 6,207. Manitou Springs School District 14 A new district think tank called ManX is intended to inspire new programs that will enhance the schools' environment, academics and growth mindset. The group, established by Superintendent Ed Longfield and based on Google's technological advancement division called Google X, is made up of about 20 staff members who study important thinkers and aim to answer: "What if we could do anything we wanted to help children learn and be ready for the 21st century? What would those things be?" "We come around and we think about new idea around learning, new experiences for kids - just kind of brainstorm, how do we become more effective - losing old paradigms of, 'school has to be this way,'" Longfield said. Administrators are working to improve the district's varied programs, many of which encourage in students what Longfield considers to be the secret to success: a combination of innovation and grit. Students can take ballet classes in a studio on the high school campus, participate in smart design, a science class that teaches such topics as robotics and aerospace engineering, or take affordable after-school music lessons through the Fine Arts Institute of Manitou, a program that serves about 100 students per day. Sixth graders can opt in to the Mountain Academy of Arts and Sciences at Ute Pass Elementary, an outdoor, experiential learning program focused on math and science. Although Longfield said the district is experiencing budget strain, enrollment is at an all-time high, topping 1,500 students, and 42 percent of Manitou Springs students attend from outside the district. The high enrollment adds pressure to D-14's goals, Longfield said. "You have to be relevant for kids to choose to come to school here, and if you aren't, you're sort of like Kodak or RadioShack - you become less relevant and you have to close your doors," he said. "We really want to be responsive." Miami-Yoder School District JT-60 New superintendent Dwight Barnes is working to build relationships in the district and the community. He's hired several new staff, including a special education teacher, and will meet many families at the annual back-to-school barbecue Aug. 12. "We usually get a great response from the community," he said, "so I'll get a chance to network." Barnes came from nearby Falcon School District 49, where he was a high school assistant principal. He took over in Miami-Yoder July 1, after the school board in February terminated the contract of 10-year superintendent Richard "Rick" Walter. Barnes also is working as the district's secondary principal. "That's common for a lot of us out here on the plains, to be a principal and the superintendent," he said. A new reading program this year for elementary students "Core Knowledge Language Arts," will better align instruction with Common Core State Standards, Barnes said. Officials also will work on molding new graduation requirements impacting the class of 2021 into its system to "get ahead of the curve." The district is refinancing two bonds from 2005 and 2008, for a 7 percent, or $7,000 to $8,000 per year savings over the life of the bonds. The board will decide whether to pay off the bonds earlier with the extra money or return it to taxpayers, Barnes said. The district will replace two buses. Enrollment should be about the same as last school year, with about 280 students. Peyton School District 23-JT Big things are happening in this small eastern district. By the time school starts, the old Peyton Middle School will have a new mission as a woodworking, construction and automotive trades center. "With career technical education starting to resurface and having more importance, this is the right time and the right opportunity to reach students who want to go directly into the workforce after high school," said Superintendent Tim Kistler. The expansion is twofold. The district is bringing its first charter school on board, the Career Building Academy, which offers construction and automotive industry training. Last school year Peyton 23-JT contracted with the school to provide classes for its students and this year agreed to become the charter authorizer for the school, which has campuses in Peyton, Colorado Springs, Walsenburg and Pueblo. District 23-JT also is opening the Peyton Woods Manufacturing Program, which will offer entry level through advanced cabinet manufacturing for high school students. The Woods Manufacturing program originated in Salem, Ore., and became nationally renowned. Kistler initially hired the director, Dean Mattson, as a consultant to help figure out how to build a similar program in Peyton. Mattson now is serving as the director of the Peyton program. Students don't build standard shop projects like bird houses or tool boxes, Kistler said. "They're making furniture, curio cabinets and coffee tables with tapered legs and connecting dovetail drawers," he said. "The industry has gotten a lot more technical." Most of the equipment and materials are donated by manufacturing companies who hope to later hire graduates. "These machines are quite expensive, but we have companies willing to give in-kind donations to fill our facility because it's such a strong program," Kistler said. "We'll have over $2 million worth of machinery they'll let us use." Manufacturing workers are in demand, said Mark Schultz, a former 23-JT board member and owner of a millworking company. "There's definitely a shortage," he said. "It's gotten to where there's a whole generation missing out realizing you can make a living with the trades. Some kids just learn better with their hands." Woodworking incorporates principles of geometry and other math, reading, writing, drawing, teamwork and life applications, said Chris Harding, a 2014 graduate of the program in Oregon who is helping Peyton get its program going. The program is starting with about 40 students and will expand up to 120, including slots for students from other districts, Kistler said. Both the charter school and the woodworking program will be housed at the former Peyton Middle School, which is under renovation to construct a woodworking shop, reconfigured classrooms and replace the hail-damaged roof. The school has sat empty for six years, when the recession caused enrollment to drop enough that the district moved the middle school into the high school building. Kistler wants to build a national woodworking center to educate not only high school students but also adults, including military veterans looking for a new career. The expanded center could open in January 2017. Voters in November agreed to a second de-TABORing in 23-JT for seven years, meaning the district will seek grants and corporate donations. "Because of our decreasing student count, the direct money coming into the school was decreasing, and with TABOR limitations, we'd have to give the money from grants back to the state," Kistler said. A nonprofit foundation is being set up to handle contributions. Fall enrollment will be about 550 students and potentially grow to 650 with the new charter school. Widefield School District 3 A new STEM program will take center stage for sixth through 12th graders. The district received a $1.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity to implement Project Lead the Way, a national science, technology, engineering and math program. D-3 introduced the curriculum in its three junior high schools last school year with full roll out this fall, said Samantha Briggs, spokeswoman. Over the summer, 12 teachers received training in biomedical science and engineering education. About 400 students have enrolled in the program at D-3's two traditional high schools, Briggs said, adding that she expects the junior high classes to fill as well. The material is experiential and project-based, Briggs said. "It's going to be an amazing program that gives hands-on learning and problem-solving," she said. "A lot of parents are looking for schools that have strong STEM programs." D-3 is known for its pride, tradition and innovation, she said, with Project Lead the Way being an innovation development that will "get students out of the box in science and math." District leaders also are gearing up for a first-time Spring Showcase, scheduled for April 23, 2016. "We're more than a number," Briggs said. "Test scores tell one small part of our story, and we want people to see the culture and talent of our award-winning music program, award-winning Navy Junior ROTC cadets, Project Lead the Way robots and experiments, and other achievements." A redesigned district website that's more user-friendly and visually appealing debuted July 1. D-3, along with Fountain-Fort Carson D-8, completed a second annual charity golf tournament in July. This year's event raised about $13,000, which, through a 22-year-old nonprofit organization called Fountain Valley Scholars, will provide scholarships at Mesa Ridge, Widefield and Fountain-Fort Carson high schools. The awards ceremony will be May 10, 2016, at Mesa Ridge High. The district's annual Widefield community parade and rivalry football game between the town's two home teams will be held Oct. 10. "Every year, the town shuts down, and every school makes a float related to Rachel's Challenge (an anti-bullying program), and we throw out T-shirts and candy," Briggs said. District officials expect enrollment to remain steady, with 9,300 to 9,400 students, Briggs said. Woodland Park School District RE-2 The town mayor will be in the dugout, elementary students will dig in the dirt and homeschool kids will have more chances to be in class in RE-2. Mayor Neil Levy has been hired as the high school baseball head coach. "He's going to be a great addition to our staff," said RE-2 Superintendent Jed Bowman. "He's very passionate about youth and baseball, and he's going to bring an enthusiasm and expectation of excellence." An experiential program for elementary school students that kicked off last school year will continue this fall. Elevate Environmental Education, in partnership with the Catamount Institute, gives kindergarten through fifth graders hands-on science curriculum outdoors, at Aspen Valley Ranch. The 300-acre ranch near Woodland Park is used for educational purposes as a program of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation. "It's a fabulous addition. Students continually marvel at how great it is to be outside learning about science and the environment," Bowman said. New this year, the district's Homeschool Enrichment Academy is offering middle school students who are homeschooled the opportunity to take classes at Summit Elementary School and expanding elementary offerings at Summit and Gateway Elementary. "As education continues to evolve, flexibility for families is important," Bowman said, "and for homeschoolers, we provide one day a week where students can come in and have enrichment activities through our liaison teachers." Also, the concurrent enrollment program with Pikes Peak Community College is growing with the addition of college algebra to the list of classes students can take to earn college credit along with their high school diploma. Ashley Lawson, an instructional resource teacher at Woodland Park High, has been promoted to principal at Gateway Elementary. The RE-2 school board is exploring options for a "sustainable funding" proposal, including a possible ballot measure involving a sales tax increase. Enrollment is expected to decrease by 80 to 100 students this school year, for a total of about 2,400 pupils. "The fact that we're able to continue environmental education and free full-day kindergarten is significant," Bowman said. "They are not ongoing funds, they are funded year-to-year, so we are grateful to be able to do both." - Gazette reporter Ellie Mulder contributed to this report. ——— ©2015 The Gazette (Colorado Springs, Colo.)
