Message from Superintendent Dan Snowberger

Dear Durango 9-R Parents/Guardians:

Since last week’s school shooting in Florida, schools across the nation are operating in a heightened and sensitive environment. This is reinforced by the constant, and at times graphic, media coverage regarding school threats, violence, guns, and safety.

Early Access for Kindergarten

Durango School District 9-R has the opportunity to accelerate highly advanced gifted children under age 5 for kindergarten and/or under age 6 for first grade. This Early Access is for those eligible students if their birthdays fall after October 1st. It is intended to support students who are evaluated to be exceptional in aptitude/cognitive reasoning, academics, school readiness and motivation. Early Access is not an acceleration pattern recommended for the majority of age 4 or age 5 gifted children who will benefit from preschool or kindergarten programming that responds to the strength area. The purpose is to identify and serve the few highly advanced gifted children who require comprehensive academic acceleration. The decision is based on a thorough set of research based procedures to determine if a child is eligible.
