Curriculum grant on its way to Adams 14


Adams 14 School District is one of nine recipients of a RISE Turnaround Grant, according to a statement.

Gov. Jared Polis made the announcement late last month.

The $900,000 grant will support Adams City High School’s new curriculum that combines academics with career and technical education.

The statement said The Academies at ACHS will enable students to get an understanding of the application of knowledge and real-world situations to career pathways of their choosing.

ACHS will offer four career and technical education-themed academies, including an academy of architecture, construction, engineering, and design; an academy of digital information and technology; an academy of health professions and sciences; and an academy of business and entrepreneurship. The projected start date is in the fall of 2023.

“I am ecstatic that Adams 14 received the RISE Turnaround Grant,” said Ronald Hruby, the district’s director of career and technology education, in a statement. “With this grant, students will not only experience learning through real-life experience, but we can also provide current industry-level equipment and materials to deliver hands-on instruction.”

Gov. Polis began the Rise fund two years ago to address learning and health challenges because of  COVID-19.

 “From Montrose to Pueblo, and Lake County to Adams County, we are making sure that all Colorado students have access to a great education,” Gov. Polis said in a statement. “As a lifelong advocate for innovation and excellence in education, I am proud that we are putting Colorado students first, supporting our schools because we know that our kids are the best investment we can make in the future of our state."
