Dear Board of Education:
We, the community of Cortez, Montezuma County,and supporters of the Montessori education respectfully request that the Children’s Kiva Elementary and Middle Charter School be allowed to continue, at the very least until the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
The Kiva E/MS Charter should be afforded the same TIME and opportunity as other struggling Re-1District schools in an effort to improve their performance and increase enrollment.
School choice is invaluable in a rural community. Charter schools provide environments and resources that are often not available in typical district schools.
