Colorado SKIES Academy learners present

Hello, Colorado SKIES Academy families,

We’re looking forward to the opportunity for our learners to present their growth during Learner-Led Conferences (LLCs) this Wednesday, April 21, and Thursday, April 22. If you did not receive an invitation yet, please email your child’s advisory facilitator. LLCs give you a chance to listen and look for opportunities to celebrate your learner’s growth and offer positive feedback.

For an overview of the purpose and format of LLCs, please watch the video below:

We would also like to invite CSA families to share your feedback about your experience with LLCs. Please click here to take the survey after you’ve attended your learner’s LLC.
