• Renewal application approved for G-Town Community School

    The Clear Creek school board has approved the renewal application for the Georgetown Community School, a public charter school.

    The school is in the third year of its initial three-year contract and submitted an application on Dec. 1 for renewal as the only charter school in Clear Creek County.

  • Consensus on school merger proving elusive

    The task force members charged with finding a solution to the school district's budget crisis are closer to a stalemate than a consensus.

    Superintendent Bill Patterson said the group has requested more time and possibly more public input. In the face of a $300,000 deficit and declining enrollment, the district is considering combining kindergarten through eighth grade or the middle school and high school.

    "The problem is, there just wasn't much separation between the options, and they all have their disadvantages," Patterson said.
