Community Campus P-8 Groundbreaking

On behalf of the Community Campus P-8 staff, I would like to thank Aurora Public Schools, the City of Aurora, and the voters for supporting this project.  I am simply thrilled to have the opportunity to open the new P-8 school in APS and develop close relationships with our students and families.  

Thank you once again to the families, Aurora Public Schools and Buckley Air Force Base for their continued support, and to Pickens Technical College for their hospitality during this construction phase.

A New P-8 School on the APS Community Campus

APS continues to experience steady enrollment growth, especially at elementary and P-8 schools. With two-thirds of elementary and P-8 schools already at 90 percent capacity or above, APS will not have the capacity to meet future enrollment projections.

To address this challenge, the APS Board of Education recently approved the construction of a new P-8 school to be located on the APS Community Campus near 6th Avenue and Airport Boulevard.

The new P-8 will serve 926 K-8 students and 96 preschool students and help to alleviate overcrowding in schools in the area. The project is scheduled to start in June 2014, and the school will open in September 2015.

APS Community Campus P-8 Attendance Area Process

APS has formed an attendance area review committee to recommend boundaries for the new P-8 school located on the APS Community Campus. The committee, comprised of parents, staff and community members, will analyze enrollment data and trends for schools in the area and develop attendance area scenarios.

In fall 2014, APS will hold open houses to share attendance area scenarios and gather feedback from the community. Based on the data collected and community input, the committee will present recommendations to the APS Leadership Team and the Board of Education in November 2014. Pending approval, the new attendance area would go into effect in the 2015-16 school year.
