Ascent Classical Academy of Douglas County appeared before the Colorado State Board of Education on October 11, 2017 for a hearing on its request for state waivers.  Waivers from state statute and rule are what provide the autonomy for a charter school to implement its own curriculum and academic program, remove restrictions on state licensing for staff, to allow a charter school to hire teachers with strong content backgrounds, and allow for operational autonomy.

The non-automatic waivers were approved by the State Board of Education on a 7-0 vote.
