COLORADO SPRINGS – In Fall 2021, students, families, and staff will embark upon a new learning experience in Harrison School District Two’s K-8 online school, Aspire Online Academy (AOA).
Colorado Department of Education (CDE) approved Aspire Online Academy to serve students and families both within and outside of the D2 community. This will allow the district the opportunity to provide a unique learning experience to a diverse group of students in a personalized experience. Due to the unique structure of the Aspire Online Academy, students will be able to participate in asynchronous (independent pacing) and synchronous (teacher-led) learning experiences. AOA staff will offer both virtual and in-person environments.
In addition to a content-based curriculum, students may also participate in varied exploratory learning experiences. These learning experiences will allow students to engage in enrichment courses that are interactive and engaging yet appealing to their creative interests. These non-traditional structures will ensure students are immersed in a well-rounded educational experience.
Harrison School District Two and Aspire Online Academy are elated to welcome their community of learners into this new, yet challenging educational journey that will allow them the opportunity to share an exceptional learning experience for all who are searching for personalized, unique educational structures.
The district looks forward to offering this new choice enrollment option to our D2 families and the greater Pikes Peak region!
Register online or at the D2 Administration Building, 1060 Harrison Road, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For registration questions, please call Student Support at 719-579-2554.
PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever AFB and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station personnel will engage in an exercise event starting tomorrow through Thursday, April 15.
The exercise is intended to ensure forces have and use the proper techniques, tactics and procedures as they protect the missions of the installations and the on-base communities. This is the first time all three bases will exercise together as part of the Peterson-Schriever Garrison.
“It’s extremely important that our installations participate in exercises,” said Col. James Smith, Peterson-Schriever Garrison commander. “This is a great opportunity to test our readiness and ensure our no-fail missions continue in the face of real-world emergency scenarios.”
Exercise scenarios will impact each base on different days. As a result, residents near the installations may hear simulated gunshots, loud booms and sirens or see smoke. Those travelling on and off the base may also experience temporary gate closures and possibly blocked segments of roads on the base.
Army & Air Force Exchange Service facilities plan to remain open throughout the event.
The Peterson-Schriever Garrison, headquartered at Peterson AFB, enable U.S. Space Force and partner mission execution of eight functional space deltas and more than 80 mission partners across 22 world-wide locations through the provision of integrated USSF and U.S. Air Force Base Operating Support, Combat Service Support, and Garrison Support Agency services.
