Academy District 20 Team One,
Every week, every day, and every hour, great happens in D20!
Thirteen of our seniors were recently named semifinalists for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Great!
The Air Academy High School Cross Country Team was ranked second in the U.S. Great!
I was recently joined by members of the D20 Teacher Cadet Program to discuss the opportunities available as they consider careers in education. Great!
When I reflect on the great moments happening in our district, I am filled with joy and pride. But sometimes we become so busy, we forget to notice all the great around us. I encourage each of you to take a few moments to celebrate the great happenings in your schools and classrooms. When you do, please email us those moments, and we’ll share them with the community.

Mill Levy Override (MLO) & School Board Candidate Election Information
On Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2023, El Paso County will hold an election. Our district will have both a Mill Levy Override (MLO) question, and a school board election question on the ballot. We want to ensure you have all the information about both the MLO and board elections to make an informed decision.
Weather, or Not?
Colorado weather can be extreme, and safety if our number one priority. There may be times this school year where a delay or closure is necessary. Before the weather turns, and snow begins to flurry, we ask that you please review our communication process and norms.
