DENVER (AP) – Former President George W. Bush plans to be in Denver on Thursday, a makeup visit for one that he canceled in February.

The Denver Post reported Monday that Bush will give brief remarks at a meeting with Get Smart Schools, then meet with local education leaders, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Denver school superintendent Tom Boasbert.

Get Smart Schools is a nonprofit Colorado group that trains principals for innovation or charter schools. It’s also developing a national certification program for principals.

Bush canceled the February visit to Denver because WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was invited to speak to another event that Bush would have attended, the Young Presidents’ Organization Global Leadership Summit.
