American Legacy Academy not given district land in Windsor to build

The Weld RE-4 School District Board of Education voted Monday against giving American Legacy Academy, a potential new charter school in the district, land currently earmarked for a traditional public elementary school in Windsor’s RainDance subdivision.

Board members said they wanted to get a better sense of what the community wanted before moving forward with a decision on the land but would continue to look for a solution that would serve the proposed charter school.

The school, also known as ALA, officially submitted its charter application to the Board of Education on Monday night but has not yet secured a place to build the kindergarten through fifth grade school leaders hope to open in fall 2023.

Leadership of ALA was in talks with the district to acquire the property in RainDance to build the school, but the board heard pushback from a number of RainDance residents Monday night before the vote and ultimately decided not to move forward at that time.
