Message from the Apex Board of Directors regarding the Opening Postponement
Dear Apex Community,
It is with disappointment and heaviness of heart that we inform you of the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education’s decision on December 30, 2017, to postpone the opening date of Apex Community School from August 2018 to August of 2019.
The reason cited is that Apex fell short of the contract benchmark for the early enrollment window. Given the new construction surrounding Apex and many homes not yet occupied, we knew that enrollment, especially early enrollment would lag. Despite our best efforts to convey this information and that growth in the area continues, the Board of Education voted to push back our opening date. Although extremely disappointed by the decision, we will keep moving forward.
As local Douglas County residents, we continue to be committed to providing the unique educational experience for children that the model of Apex embodies. We continue to envision a school where each student is challenged academically and everyone belongs. We continue to invite you to share in the privilege and excitement of shaping the future of generations to come.
