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!
