Cherry Creek High School students now have a few more days to study after  Greenwood Village Police and the Cherry Creek School District recovered ACT and Advanced Placement tests stolen from the school Sunday night.

According to a statement from the school, authorities recovered the testing materials Tuesday, along with tools used in the theft.

The break-in occurred in the basement of the west building at Cherry Creek High School in a secured storage room. Surveillance video showed a single individual entering the building late at night and leaving carrying several objects.

Greenwood Village police have identified a person of interest and are investigating.

The district has informed the Colorado Department of Education, ACT, and ETS, which administers the AP exams for the College Board. 

“We are in the process of conducting an inventory of the recovered tests,” said Cherry Creek School District Superintendent Mary Chesley. “I am confident that we have found the sole juvenile involved.

Students will now take the ACT test on May 8, which is the previously scheduled statewide test make-up day.

 “We are very appreciative of the Greenwood Village Police Department and district personnel who understood the gravity of the situation and spent hours investigating this matter,” Chesley said.
