Keep Gilpin Elementary Montessori School Open

This petition had 497 supporters

We request that the Denver Board of Education reject the recommendation to close Gilpin Montessori Elementary School at the close of the 2016/2017 school year. 

We support the progress that the students, teachers and administration of Gilpin Montessori have made in the 2016/2017 school year. This progress is not represented in the data used in the School Performance Framework. We see the progress that the data currently does not reflect, both in the classroom and in our little scholars.

The closure of Gilpin has an impact on the community that should be considered through community-wide discussions. 

We request an additional year of support to the Gilpin Montessori faculty to continue their remarkable transformation and provide this community with a vibrant Montessori elementary school that serves residents in this neighborhood from diverse backgrounds.
