Forget The District, We’ll Do It Ourselves


Dacono wants an elementary school. Badly. So it is turning its back on the St. Vrain Valley School District, which has dragged its feet in building one for Dacono for years. To force the issue, the town is pulling out of an agreement with the district that filters lucrative development fees to St. Vrain. Best-case scenario: The threat gets St. Vrain to build a school or work with Fort Lupton schools in building a permanent facility for Quest Academy, a Dacono K-8 that houses classes in temporary modules. Funding a charter school is an option for Dacono.

What’s Next: Officials are waiting for the results of a survey to see how residents want the town to proceed—assuming St. Vrain doesn’t cave in.
