  • District 6 awarded grant to create command center

    Posted by KIM DESMOND on 3/20/2024

    Greeley-Evans School District 6 has been awarded $509,000 to build an incident response command center to enhance district-wide security and crisis response.


    The district applied for the grant through the School Security Disbursement Grant Program, which was created by the Colorado State Legislature and funded with $16 million for the first year. More than 120 grant applications were received and 68 were selected to receive funding, including District 6.


    The grants can be used for capital construction to improve safety and security, training in student threat assessment, provide training for school resource officers, provide training in emergency response, and other areas of school safety and incident response.


    District 6 will use the funding to build an incident response command center at the Administration Building in downtown Greeley. The grant will be used to pay for technology equipment and software, infrastructure, furniture, crisis response equipment and training. The center will be used as a command center for crisis response, and will eventually be built out to include a dispatch center to assist schools and district buildings, coordinate emergency response and provide continuous monitoring of security cameras.


    “A big part of our work with the 2019 Bond Issue and our strategic plan, Innovation 2030, has been to continually look at how we can make our schools safer and more secure. We have added security personnel, constructed secure entrances, installed thousands of security cameras and have enhanced training for staff,” said Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch. “Creating a central command center to help manage emergencies and crisis situations has been a missing piece that this grant will help us fill.”


    Funding will be available in May and District 6 hopes to have the Safety and Security Command Center up and running in the fall.

  • GAP, NEXT programs graduate 58 students

    Posted by KIM DESMOND on 1/29/2024

    The Greeley-Evans Alternative Program and Next Program presented 42 high school diplomas and 16 high school equivalency diplomas to students at its winter graduation ceremony Saturday, January 27.


    The ceremony, held in the Greeley West High School auditorium, was packed with family, friends and supporters of these graduates, many who have overcome academic and personal challenges to achieve their goal of graduation.


    The two student graduation speakers had both lost a parent in their teens, nearly de-railing their goal of achieving a high school diploma.


    “I had doubts about graduating and becoming the person I am today,” said GAP graduate Jessie Gutierrez, whose father died when she was 16. “But I had a dream and I reached it.”


    Speaker Shea McDaniel, whose stepfather passed away when she was in high school, said she didn’t think she could go back to school after the loss, and considered dropping out.


    “It wasn’t until I realized GAP was really different that things just started to click,” McDaniel said. “If you set your mind to something you want, you can do it!”


    This was the Greeley-Evans Alternative Program’s 30th graduation since it was established 15 years ago to assist 17-21 year old students who are low on high school credits. The program hosts a graduation ceremony in January and in June.  Greeley Next is a high school equivalency program that helps students successfully test for and obtain a GED.


    “Completing your high school diploma and GED is no small feat,” said commencement speaker Chris Garcia, a Greeley West graduate who now serves as the assistant director of Alumni Relations at the University of Northern Colorado. “The journey ahead is filled with possibilities.”
