District School Connectivity Project underway

A recently started fiber construction project is designed to meet the network and Internet connectivity needs of Adams 12 Five Star Schools for years to come.

Construction work for the district’s School Connectivity Project got underway in August. A new district-wide dark fiber network was identified as part of the 2016 Bond Program. Dark fiber refers to a network where the district has control over the capacity and use of the network. The network being constructed by the district includes unused capacity to provide for future growth.

STEM Lab back in construction mode

After a summer focused on demolition work, construction got back under way at STEM Lab in Northglenn. The school is in the midst of a two-year, $20 million renovation and rebuild project made possible through community support of the 2016 Bond Program.

In early August, construction equipment finished clearing the last of the rubble from the July demolition of the building's former west classroom wing.
