Sand Creek Zone Overview

Based on Sand Creek Zones outlined goals, all schools will continuously strive for increased student achievement as measured by international, national, state and local standards; all students will attend schools comprised of high performing, collaborative teams of educators; and through a consistent process of innovation, the zone will engage its community. Three of the schools, Evans International Elementary School, Horizon Middle School and Sand Creek High School, encompass the only K-12 International Baccalaureate feeder system in eastern Colorado Springs. As an internationally accredited, rigorous and engaging educational program, the International Baccalaureate is a large part of the zone's identity.

Portfolio of Schools

Portfolio of Schools District 49 will create a robust portfolio of distinct and exceptional schools. It’s not enough just to have a bunch of different kinds of schools; the district needs to have high quality, exceptional schools. District 49 strives to offer wonderful schools in all of its zones, schools that are different from each other and superior to the options students might have in neighboring districts and communities.
District 49’s board-approved strategic plan provides unified vision, goals and strategies to prepare students to achieve like never before. Its strategic plan is organized around a a big rocks metaphor. If the district identifies and focuses on what's most important – its big rocks of trust, community, best district, portfolio of schools and every student – and then adds other things around them, the medium-sized rocks, and finally works in the pebbles, everything better fits together. District 49 has applied this metaphor in its strategic plan, which identifies the district's Big Rocks. These strategic initiatives will be emphasized over the upcoming years, representing the district’s commitment to its community. These five rocks are its foundation for building an excellent future with its staff, students and greater community.
