The system provides an efficient means of coding and finding policies and regulations.
Our mission is to provide the learning opportunities and instruction necessary to produce educated productive citizens, knowledgeable about our government, our history, and academically prepared to contribute to our community, nation and world.
The District’s greatest assets are dedicated teachers and supportive families. The District acknowledges the primacy of the family as the fundamental authority in the lives of its children.
School District 49 is governed by the parents and patrons of the district by electing 5 citizen directors, who hire three chief officers (Chief Business Officer, Chief Education Officer, and Chief Operations Officer) to carry out their directives.
Each director before taking office, has promised to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, and the Constitution of the State of Colorado. We place, in part, the words of our state constitution at the head of our board policies, because from it originates the authority of the citizens who serve as directors of Falcon School District 49.Constitution of the State of Colorado – Section 15.
