Imagine Classical Academy Indigo Ranch Classrooms

This District 49 public charter school uses a standards-based curriculum incorporating the Colorado State Standards, the Core Knowledge scope and sequence and the Classical approach. A strong character education program compliments the academic program and stresses character development and responsibility. The third major component of the school is the partnership with parents and the community. A high level of parent partnership and involvement is expected at the school from both staff and parents.

iConnect Zone Graduation Requirements

Policy IKF specifies that graduation from District 49 must be based on demonstrated mastery of Colorado Academic Standards. One method of demonstrating mastery is successful completion of a sequence of courses. In the traditional model of earning credits toward graduation, each course is associated with an academic content area as well as a number of credits earned. The following table establishes the baseline expectations for credit-based demonstration of mastery toward high school graduation. In this model, one credit denotes the successful mastery of content that has traditionally been incorporated in a full year of study. Credit is awarded on a semester basis only and requires a passing grade of “D” or higher.
