Seeking Applicants - Personalized Competency Based Learning Team

An action in this year’s Teaching and Learning Plan is to convene a Personalized Competency Based Learning (PCBL) Team. As the district continues to evolved its instructional practices to support personalized learning based on individual competency, it is critical to have parents and our community involved in this process.  To that end, we are seeking representatives of each school and stakeholder group.

SAAC Members Needed

As this school year begins we are looking for one parent and one community member to serve on our Fort Lewis Mesa School Accountability Advisory Committee. For further information read the attached letter. Thank you for your consideration. For further information or questions, contact Denise at 970-588-3331.

Air Quality Health Advisory From San Juan Basin Public Health

Intermountain West and Pacific Northwest wildfires are affecting local air quality. If smoke is thick or becomes noticeably thicker in your area you should remain indoors or if possible seek out locations where air is filtered. Unusually sensitive people throughout the region should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion.

Introducing the BRAVO! Junior Awards

A few years ago, 9-R introduced the BRAVO! Award program for staff, which was a fun and easy way to recognize all the great work our staff does daily for our students, families and schools. To build upon the success of that program, Durango School District 9-R is also celebrating our amazing students with the BRAVO! Junior Award program.

Thank you to our Convocation Sponsors!!

We rolled out the red carpet on Friday to welcome back staff for the new school year with a 9-R Academy Awards theme. Thank you to everyone who helped to make 9-R Convocation a success including our sponsors!

Parent Permission for Students to View 2017 Great American Eclipse

On Monday, August 21, 2017, our district will be in the path of a near total solar eclipse. This event is being called “The Great American Eclipse” because it is the first time since 1918 a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the entire continental United States.

Three School Board Seats Available

The County Clerk has been notified that Durango School District 9-R will be participating in the coordinated election in November.  The Board of Education will have three four-year seats up for election --- District A (currently filled by Nancy Stubbs), District C (currently filled by Kim Martin), and District E (previously filled by Andy Burns).

Great Career Opportunities!

Durango School District 9-R has several great career opportunities that include full benefits, vacation and sick days, part-time options and, in many cases, summer off. For example, we are currently seeking part-time cooks to assist with our breakfast and lunch programs in the school.
