Excel Academy was built in 2004. Therefore, the pipes, faucets and drinking fountains installed during the construction of our building are certified lead-free and adhere to the 1991 Lead and Copper Rule. Therefore, lead testing is not required at this time. As a charter school, we are not included in Jeffco’s testing plan. However, we are working closely with Jeffco to make sure that we take whatever steps are deemed necessary to ensure that the drinking water continues to be safe for our students and staff to drink.
