Welcome to Colorado Springs School District 11
As the President of the Colorado Springs School District 11 Board of Education, I would like to welcome you to our school district! I am extremely proud of what our school district has to offer students, families, and our community. The Board of Education is thankful for the trust and confidence of School District 11 citizens who voted overwhelmingly in favor of the November 2017 Mill Levy Override (MLO) request. Additionally, we are excited to build on this momentum as we work with Superintendent, Dr. Michael J. Thomas. Dr. Thomas is a competent and proven leader who possesses the professional attributes necessary to develop and foster a high-performing learning environment. He leads our team of educators who are dedicated to student achievement and mentorship. The Board of Education continues to demonstrate its commitment to serving students, staff, and the community. We strive to make thoughtful and objective decisions when formulating and managing financial and governing policies, which are responsive to all stakeholders.
Colorado Springs School District 11 offers our students a wide variety of educational opportunities. Our students have choices! You can pursue an International Baccalaureate education, study for an associate degree, or participate in extra-curricular activities including the arts, intramural and varsity sports, student government, or a variety of student-led clubs. Our expert staff members are available and prepared to assist you with choosing the academic pathway best suited for your long-term goals.
I ask parents, guardians, and community members to stay involved with D11 schools by offering your service to school district committees and subcommittees. Please also provide feedback to the Board of Education and district senior leadership. We want to hear from you! What you think is important.
