District 60 has announced that Central High will be under partial external management after five consecutive years rating as “Priority Improvement” by the Colorado Department of Education. The district has signed a two-year pact with the University of Virginia’s Partnership for Leaders in Education. In May 2019 Central participated in a two-day State Review Panel process. The panel indicated they thought Central would benefit for engagement with an external partner.

At District 70 Tony Montoya, on the board since September 2013, resigned from his position. In his resignation he said he is “moving in another direction to pursue my interest in community beyond the scope of education.”

The cancer center will be built on the site of the former Scottish Rite Temple in the 1500 block of North Elizabeth Street. The cancer center is expected to open in the summer of 2021 with the orthopedic center opening in early 2022.
