At Greeley-Evans School District 6, we are proud of the programs we have in the place and the learning that goes on in our schools every day. But I realize that most citizens in our community don’t have the same kind of access to our schools that we do as employees of the district. We want to change that.
The 6th Annual District 6 Citizens Academy will begin again October 5, and continue meeting on the first Monday of each month through May. It is a chance for interested residents to get an up-close and personal look at the daily operations of our schools at each level, plus receive in depth information about our central administration, transportation services, nutrition services, facilities and more.
What’s even more important than the information you will glean is the chance to have your questions answered. Maybe it’s been years since you’ve been inside a school, or had your children enrolled in school. Maybe you are currently a parent of District 6 students, but want to learn more about other programs and schools. Maybe you are a business owner who wants to attract quality employees to this area, some of whom may have school-age children. Maybe you’ve heard things about District 6 in the community, and you want to either confirm or dispel what you’ve heard.
The Citizens Academy is an excellent way to have all your questions answered, learn some things you maybe didn’t know about District 6 and see first-hand what is happening in your public schools. The seven sessions are just two hours – 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. – and we even provide lunch from our nationally-recognized Nutrition Services department.
Here are this year’s Citizens Academy Schedule:

I invite you to join us for the Citizens Academy. It is an informative, enjoyable and enlightening look at the 13th largest school district in Colorado. We look forward to meeting you!

Greeley-Evans School District 6 is hosted its second annual School Kickoff Community Celebration on August 8 at Island Grove Regional Park, in Greeley. Through sponsorships and donations, District 6 had raised enough money to give away 2,200 backpacks filled with school supplies. A free lunch for 2,000 participants was also served, and more than 65 community booths provided activities and information for families.
More than 300 people gathered on July 16th, 2015 to cut the ribbon and see first-hand the newest school in Greeley-Evans School District 6: Prairie Heights Middle School. A short ceremony featured speeches and recognitions by Board of Education President Roger DeWitt, Chief Operations Officer Wayne Eads, former school board member Jesse Quinby, Superintendent Deirdre Pilch and former Superintendent Ranelle Lang. After the program, attendees were invited to tour the school, visit classrooms and walk through office space.
