Letter to Parents

April 2015


Dear Parents and Community Members,

PPAS is blooming this spring! So much is happening for Parker Performing Arts School, and I’m excited to share this update with you.

Progress Update & Timeline
Our charter application was submitted in March, and it is currently being reviewed by the Douglas County School District. We have an interview scheduled with DCSD in early May, and representatives from the district will attend our community information meeting on May 12. We hope to receive charter approval in May or early June. Once we receive approval we will move forward on securing a location and starting the building design process. Exciting times are ahead!
