Summary : The Former Wildlife Experience/“Innovation Campus”
This “innovation campus” is located in north Parker/Lone Tree and is scheduled to open for a planning year in the 2022-23 school year on a traditional calendar. This “innovation campus/program” in Lone Tree will open its doors with 700+ students (in the 2023-24SY) and will provide students districtwide career and technical education, concurrent enrollment and work-based learning experiences.

The Former ACC Parker Building/Alternative Education School
This is an alternative education school located in north Parker and is scheduled to open for a planning year in the 2022-23 school year on a traditional calendar. Using Marzano’s High Reliability Schools guidance, High School #10 in Parker will open its doors to grades 9-11 (in the 2023-24SY) with research-based learning experiences utilizing both project-based and work-based learning with a focus on entrepreneurialism. Small class sizes, personalized learning and exposure and experience in career pathways will offer students a variety of post secondary options to choose from.
Recommendation: That the Board of Education approve the staff's recommendation that the former Wildlife Experience be named "DCSD Legacy Campus" and the former ACC Parker Building be named "Venture Academy of Leadership and Entrepreneurship (VALE). Home of the Voyagers" for the former ACC Parker Building.
