Springs Studio Updates

  • Inclement Weather Policy 
    SSAE students and families,
    Here are a couple things you must know regarding weather delays or cancellations related to Springs Studio campus and virtual access:
    1. If District 49 closes the district for weather: SSAE school campus will be closed but teachers will still be available online for student support.
    2. If District 49 issues a 2 hour delay for weather our campus will open for classes at 9:30 AM.
    These decisions are made by district administration not by school personnel.
    Here is how to get notified of closures and delays:
    • Go to to see updates in the scrolling messages!
    • Go to and look in the upper right corner for status of district
    • Tune into KRDO Television Channel 13 in Colorado Springs

  • Charter School Request For Proposals: District 49 believes that every child should have the right to high-quality educational options. A Request For Proposals for high quality charter schools has been released with this in mind. The district is seeking motivated and talented teams of educators, parents, teachers, and community leaders with the commitment to implement effective and innovative methods of educating children. Because we understand that not every student learns the same way, the district desires to operate and authorize a robust portfolio of schools where programs are designed to fit the needs of individual students, while addressing our district’s priority needs for new school development. Learn more on the Charter Schools Authorizing page.

  • PPSEL Spring Institute Training: Pikes Peak School of Expeditionary Learning staff members took our annual spring institute training. This year our focus is a constructivist classroom and an integrated-interdisciplinary model. This work leads to revision of our expeditions (curricula). PPSEL leadership team is in Denver on June 6-7 developing their work plan goals for the year. This is accomplished with other leadership of the Mountain Region of Expeditionary Learning. Four PPSEL staff members are scheduled to attend the EL 101 conference in July. This is training for new or newer staff to learn more about our model and begin to align their practices with PPSEL values. The school is beginning to plan its School of Choice Week event for January.
