Colorado Springs School District

Colorado Springs Public Schools operate within school districts which are separate entities responsible for administering Public Schools. Colorado Springs school districts are led by boards or commissions who set policy for the district and appoint a Superintendent of Schools. Board and commission members may be elected by voters within the district, or in some cases may be appointed by the legislative body that serves the district. While the Colorado State impose frameworks and some minimum requirements for length of school year, teacher qualifications, curriculum and other elements of public education, the Colorado Springs school district has significant latitude within these frameworks and the authority to manage the day-to-day operation of Public Schools.

Types of Colorado Springs Public Schools

Colorado Springs Public Schools are largely organized into three groups, each serving different grade levels. Colorado Springs Elementary Schools typically serve students from Pre-K, Kindergarten or Grade 1 through Grade 5 or Grade 6.
