Englewood Schools is a school district located in Englewood, Colorado, United States, in the Greater Denver area.

History[edit]

In 1991 Roscoe Davidson, the superintendent, won "Colorado Superintendent of the Year" in 1991. He retired in 1999. Ginny McKibben of the Denver Post said that Davidson "has represented the best for many Colorado educators: scholarly, impeccably dressed and imbued with the voice of reason."[1]

In 2000 the district enrollment decreased by 188 students, above the predicted loss of 100 students. As a result, the school district lost $1 million in funding for the 1999-2000 school year. Steven White, the superintendent, said that he would attempt to find methods to attract more students, and that the decline would result in budget cuts. Ginny McKibben of the Denver Post said that in general outerlying school districts in Greater Denver were "flourishing" but that Englewood Schools had a different scenario.[2]
