Patrick Sandos
(Registered Democrat)
2018 $160,000 plus benefits and expenses (Starting salary) June 30, 2020, plus 1-year extension 720-833-6617

The 2018 search for a superintendent was fraught with controversy and uncertainty, reflective of the base issues within the school board itself (having only 4 members, with the 5th seat being open for more than a decade, plus concerns from the community about rapidly changing demographics not being taken into consideration, and whether or not the district is on the right track with the longtime members saying the district was).

Support in terms of demographic representation consolidated behind Antonio Equibel, with at least one board member (Stange) expressing a preference for Equibel.

Newly appointed 5th member, Juanita Camacho cast the deciding vote to approve the hiring of Sandos.
