Now, it seems that may not be the case after all. Earlier this month, the Falcon School District 49 Board of Education unanimously approved a plan to make Sand Creek High School a School of Innovation. The plan will now move on to the Colorado Board of Education for final approval.
According to a press release, Sand Creek students will have the opportunity to participate in specialized programs, or “pathways,” if the plan is approved. For instance, “A media and communications pathway will focus on developing career-ready skills in the tech, graphic design and marketing industries and will include dual credit options with area universities,” it stated. Other pathways include one for visual and performing arts, and another for engineering and technology.
