A message from Principal Simpson…
There is an election around the corner. In addition to two important state-wide propositions (see Colorado’s 2019 Blue Book), there are three Douglas County Board of Education Director positions on the ballot. Elections matter and I want to personally encourage every Ben Franklin Academy parent to do your research, get involved and, most importantly, cast your vote!

I want to let you know that The Alliance of Douglas County Charter Schools is hosting a forum for the six Douglas County Board of Education candidates next week. The forum is being moderated by two charter leaders – Teri Aplin from Parker Core Knowledge and Steve Colella, deputy executive director of schools for American Academy. 

The School Board Candidate Forum Hosted by The Alliance of Douglas County Charter Schools (you can follow them on Facebook) is from  6 – 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, at Parker Performing Arts School (15035 Compark Blvd, Parker, 80134).

Please RSVP and submit questions for the candidates!
