Greeley-Evans School District 6 elementary and K-8 schools will conduct kindergarten enrollment for incoming students April 2-27. Many of our schools are hosting evening registration events and open houses during the registration window, and we encourage parents and students to attend.

Incoming kindergarten students must be 5 years old by October 1, 2018, in order to register for the 2018-19 school year.

To register, parents or legal guardians need to visit the home school in their neighborhood. Parents who have received approval to open enroll their student in a school outside their neighborhood need to visit that site.

To register for school, parents should bring:

  • a birth certificate or its equivalent for the student
  • up-to-date immunization records for the student
  • proof of address (recent utility bill, lease agreement, or something similar)

If you do not know the name or location of your neighborhood school, you may contact the District 6 Transportation Office at 970-348-6800.

District 6 awarded for financial reporting

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to Greeley-Evans School District 6 for the district’s comprehensive annual financial report.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and represents a significant accomplishment by organizations that receive this honor. The District 6 comprehensive annual financial report was judged by an impartial panel, and must demonstrate a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” and clearly communicate the financial story of the district.

“We are proud of our finance department for again achieving this high honor,” says Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch. “District 6 is committed to providing full financial transparency and making expenditures available to the public on our website. We want residents in Greeley and Evans to be confident that their tax contributions to District 6 are being spent to support student learning and achievement with the highest accountability possible.”

Charter Schools League presents award to Dr. Pilch

The Colorado League of Charter Schools presented Greeley-Evans School District 6 Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch with the 2018 Outstanding Charter School Authorizer Award.

The League of Charter Schools circulated an invitation among the 51 organizations that authorize charter schools, as well as the 250 public charter schools in the state to accept nominations for this award.

“In our qualifying conversations, the directors of charter schools authorized by District 6 and other community leaders spoke very highly of the dynamic leadership, inclusive style and commitment to all kids and families that you have brought,” wrote League of Charter Schools President Benjamin J. Lindquist, in his notification letter to Dr. Pilch.

Six schools are currently chartered and authorized through District 6: Frontier Academy, Salida del Sol Academy, Union Colony Elementary, Union Colony Preparatory, University Schools and Westridge Academy.

“I am humbled by this recognition, and very grateful for the support of our charter school leaders,” said Dr. Pilch. “We are all District 6, regardless of whether we are traditional or charter schools. These are all our children, and we share responsibility for their learning and success.”
