About District 49

Our vision is to be the best choice in public education. We envision a future when every time a student, parent, or educator chooses a school district, we are the best choice they can make. We have a mission to Learn, Work, and Lead. Our commitment is to be the best place to learn, to work, and to lead. Every day, we create environments so that everyone associated with the district is always learning, working, and leading us to be the best.

District 49 spans 133 square miles of suburban and rural areas covering northeast Colorado Springs and the Falcon area of El Paso County. As the fastest growing school district in the Pikes Peak region, it's currently serving more than 23,000 students within its portfolio of schools. 

District 49 is led by three chief officers rather than a single superintendent. The chief education officer, chief business officer and chief operations officer work collaboratively together, and directly with, department directors who are staffed with activity coordinators and specialists.
