Falcon High School graduation requirements will change, beginning with the class of 2021. Teams of administrators and counselors from Falcon Middle School and Falcon High School have begun working on revisions. This work is initiated based on the new Colorado High School graduation guidelines developed by our state. Information will be shared soon across the zone regarding current drafts of possibilities, and a community meeting will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 21, at Falcon Middle School.
In February 2016, we formed a group of parents, staff and community members as the "Falcon Zone Coalition." At this time, at the start of the 2016-2017 school year, we have 14 members who are dedicated to supporting two goals for the coming year: Improving communication and engagement with students, staff and parents between and among school sites; and broadening and enhancing communication with the overall Falcon Zone community. At the August meeting, the team decided to begin immediate work on the first goal, so look for more information soon regarding progress and action in this area.
Dr. Julia Roark is the new Falcon Zone superintendent. She most recently served as Assistant Superintendent for Aspen School District in Colorado, from 2010 - 2015. Prior to that Julia was a Principal Mentor and Professional Development Specialist, as well as a school principal in New Mexico. In her 32 years as an educator across four states, in addition to her experiences as a school administrator, she has been a classroom teacher, coordinator for gifted students’ programming, instructional coach, and graduate and undergraduate level college instructor.
Julia earned both a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts from Drury College in Springfield, Missouri. She then went on to achieve her Doctor of Education degree from University of Northern Colorado in K-12 Reading Education, as well as completing principal and administrator licensure programs through University of Phoenix and University of Colorado - Colorado Springs.
Dr. Roark is excited about the opportunity to lead, and further enhance the innovation, collaboration and excellence already in place. She looks forward to working closely with the staff, the families and the overall community in the Falcon Zone.
