An Additional Community Open House: Long-Term Planning
Lewis-Palmer School District along with RTA Architects and Western Demographics will host an additional community open house on Wednesday, March 1, at Lewis-Palmer Middle School, 6:00-7:00 p.m. This open house will share the same information that was presented during the open house on Monday, February 13.
March 1 Open House Invitation
This past spring, Lewis-Palmer School District contracted with RTA Architects to provide long-range facilities planning and consultation services in light of the significant growth in the Tri-Lakes area. RTA recently completed a physical assessment of LPSD buildings and a demographic study. This open house provides the opportunity for the public to hear these initial findings and provide feedback.
This is the PowerPoint presentation shared at the open house.
More information regarding the February 13 presentation is available here.

Educator Effectiveness Metrics
On February 6 for the first time, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) will release a limited number of Educator Effectiveness Metrics that reflect teacher and principal ratings from the 2014-2015 school year. The department will report on only four metrics for teachers and four for principals. The publicly reported metrics will only show how teachers and principals are doing as a group at the school, district, and state level. Once published, the release will be available on CDE’s news release webpage, where you can also link to SchoolView to view state-, district-and school- level Educator Effectiveness Metrics data. Please note: the CDE's reporting of LPSD "not rated" data is incorrect. CDE is addressing this issue.
LPSD continues to be rated as Accredited with Distinction by the state of Colorado:
The CDE released PRELIMINARY DRAFTS of District and School Performance Frameworks (DPF and SPF) on Tuesday, October 4. This information may be accessed under the Assessment and Accountability Department page.
