Stargate Governance 101:
How does the Adams 12 School Board impact Stargate? Because Stargate is a Charter School, we have our own governance structure that is independent from the District. However, our school is authorized through the Adams 12 School District and we are still subject to many of the policies set up by the District. Stargate and Adams 12 work very well together in part because of our fostered relationship with the Adams 12 Board of Directors.

You can get informed about the current candidates for the Adams 12 School Board Elections by reading their biographies on the Adams 12 website ( and reading about their position on Charter Schools from the Colorado League of Charter Schools survey (
