A MESSAGE FROM:

AUL Denver

2023-2024

AUL Denver (formally Academy of Urban Learning ) is a small charter school in North Denver founded by the Jared Polis Foundation and Urban Peak to meet the academic and social/emotional needs of students from unstable living conditions. AUL has undergone a recent transformation in the past five years, beginning with the last principal overhauling the curriculum and instructional practices with a move towards project based learning (PBL). The staff continues to engage in a year-long series of 1:1 and whole staff trainings with a significant portion of our title 1 training Page 3 of 19 budget allocated for this. The SPF had indicated a downward trend in all academic areas, until the 2018-19 school year, when AUL showed a marked increase in all areas. Since 2018, AUL has continued to see upward trends, including being less that 1% point away from green on the state SPF. This was due, in part, to misreporting on dropout data by the district. Our underlying goals for our scholars have not shifted much from our previous school year. We are continuing to push for increases in our attendance rates, hexter passing rates and overall engagement and post-secondary readiness for our scholars. Post-covid clean up continues as we are working to regulate, engage and grow our students- academically and socially- each day they are with us. Some of our largest shifts moving into the 2023-24 school year were in regards to staffing, both bringing in new staff members and more carefully matching current staff with roles that best utilized their skill-sets, and most importantly, best served our students. Our heaviest moves were within our mental health team. Part of our mission remains to diminish the school to prison pipeline, so AUL remains determined to explore all possibilities to provide court advocacy for students and their families while also providing pathways to post secondary career opportunities. Our mental health team has been converted into our wellness team which includes a tandem of part-time school psychologists, two full time social workers and one restorative justice coordinator. Wellness for our scholars including access to mental health resources regularly is imperative. Data collection methods will be used to determine appropriate supports and interventions using the problem solving process within the MTSS framework. Other staffing changes surrounded leadership. Our most seasoned Math teacher and master scheduler was promoted to Dean of Instruction, allowing him to focus solely on programming, schedules, data collection and analysis and direct and regular communication with our scholars regarding their credits and graduation path. Our family liaison was promoted to Dean of Culture, allowing her to focus primarily on students? needs and behaviors, both collectively and individually. Our former in-house guest teacher was promoted to the family liaison role. An English teacher pushed into an intervention role, focusing on our students most in need of academic regulation and support and a Social Studies teacher holds the assistant principal role. Our current goals and initiatives will be discussed throughout the remainder of the plan, but some of these focus areas include: 1. Analysis of student attendance and engagement including increasing scholar accountability involving attendance, 2. Develop and/or use a curriculum and framework to implement tiered trauma-informed education systems, 3. Develop and increase capacity for multi-tiered system of supports to solve problems using tiered interventions.
