Admissions to Adams 12 Five Star Schools is managed by the districts admissions office via the Choice Process. If you have children attending STEM Launch and wish for your younger child(ren) to attend STEM Launch you must indicate to the district that you wish for your younger children to attend STEM Launch by submitting a Schools of Choice application. It is very important that you submit an application as younger siblings of STEM Launch students will NOT be able to enroll UNLESS they have been approved via Choice. Siblings of students already attending STEM Launch will have priority in the lottery for STEM Launch.

The priority consideration round of Choice opens December 1st and runs through January 31st. Please apply for your younger children to attend STEM Launch no later than January 31st.  All applications are accepted via the district's online Choice application.  The Choice application will be available beginning December 1st at Adams 12 Choice Application.  For families without computer access, a computer kiosk will be available at each school or the Educational Support Center.  All applications received by the deadline are included in a lottery for available spaces (the process is not first-come, first served).  Families are notified via US mail no later than the third week of February for the 1st round.

Parents Right To Know

As a parent of a student at STEM Launch, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher who instructs your child. This is a requirement for all districts that receive Title I funds. Federal law allows you to request certain information about your student’s classroom teacher. The law also requires the district to give you this information in a timely manner upon request. Listed below is the information about which you have the right to ask for regarding each of your student’s classroom teachers.
  • Whether the Colorado Department of Education has licensed or endorsed your student’s teacher for the grades and subjects taught.
  • Whether CDE has decided that your student’s teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances.
  • The teacher’s college major; whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and, if so, the subject of the degrees.
  •  Whether any teachers’ aides or similar para-educators provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.
  Please contact Robyn Werpy in the Adams 12 Five Star Schools Human Resources Office at 720-972-4058 or if you would like to receive any of this information.
