We are so grateful for all the due diligence, perseverance and flexibility of our staff, students and families. We have had a great start to the school year and are so excited to have all students back in all schools full time. Thank you for all your efforts and support as we settle into the school year.
Volunteer your time by serving on the School Board!
The Durango School District 9-R Board of Education is now accepting applications from persons interested in serving on the Board of Education from the date of appointment until a qualified successor is elected at the regular biennial school election in November 2023.
Are you interested in joining our team? We have full and part time positions available for certified nursing assistants, paraprofessionals, custodians, bus drivers, and cooks. We have day and evening positions and offer a Monday – Friday workweek!
We offer full time positions with benefits as well as flexible positions. Note, individuals do not have to have a college degree in order to serve in this role – candidates can hold a 1-year Colorado Substitute License with documentation of completion of one year of post-secondary education.
Dear Families, Thank you for entrusting us with your students this school year and for your support and patience. It has been a wonderful start to the year even with the COVID precautions we have had to implement.
With the new school year, please review the current athletics and activities guidelines. The guidelines are reflective of the Colorado Public Health and Environment Toolkit and Center for Disease Control Guidance for athletics and activities.
This year, we anticipate fewer quarantines, due to the population-based approach and masking. Students who are absent will follow the attendance policy, making up work when they return unless the teacher plans otherwise. (This applies even if the student is in isolation or a quarantined determined by San Juan Basin Public Health) . We will not conduct live teaching or Zooming into classrooms during absences as was done during quarantines in the 20-21 school year.
Mark your calendars for September 15, 2021 at 5:30pm to join 9-R Board Member Theresa Rodriguez to share your ideas and suggestions to support the ongoing work of the district. Location details to follow. Translation services are available.
