Dear APS Parents and Guardians,
The foundation of our district's strategic plan, APS 2020: Shaping the Future, is our community's core beliefs. As we return from winter break and begin the second semester, I would like to reflect on some of these core beliefs:
- Families are our partners in education.
- Students, families, staff and community members share the responsibility for student achievement.
- Students take an active and ongoing responsibility for their learning.
These core beliefs highlight the importance of why our partnership with you is vital in achieving our community's vision that every student shapes a successful future. With this in mind, I would like to remind you that many of our students will participate in state testing this spring. Participation is important because results help students, parents and teachers understand whether students have mastered the content they need to know by the end of the school year to be on track for college and career success. We are asking for your help in preparing our students to do their very best on these upcoming assessments.
All students residing outside the GHS attendance area or students residing out of district must submit an open enrollment application, and be accepted by Dr. Davis, in order to attend here.

I am happy to report that APS voters approved ballot measure 3C, our $300 million bond. On behalf of our Board of Education, students, parents and staff, I would like to thank voters for their support. Our bond program will fund facility, technology and security improvements at every APS school and benefit every student.
We could not have accomplished this victory without the hard work of staff, parents and community members. I would like to extend a special thank you to the Aurora Citizens for Excellent Schools campaign committee, led by William Stuart and John Britz, for their dedication to the success of Aurora Public Schools.
We are planning to schedule some projects to begin this school year, including the start of construction on our new Mrachek Middle School. For a full list of projects please visit: http://bond.aurorak12.org/projects/. As we move forward with projects, we will provide regular status updates to community members and staff.
The APS bond program will make a difference at every school and help us in achieving our mission to increase academic achievement and opportunities for all students.
Thank you again for your support and dedication.
