In a continued effort to provide the 9-R community with information about our current budget and ongoing financial needs Durango School District will be hosting two sessions in February. 

These sessions will provide the community, staff and 9-R administrators the opportunity to engage in conversations about what is currently happening in school finance and hear from the community how they would like to see our needs prioritized. 

The first session will be held on February 16 from 6-8 pm at Durango High School. The second session will be held February 18 at Escalante Middle School from 6-8 pm. Additional sessions will be scheduled in the coming months.    

Please consider attending one of the two sessions in February and becoming involved in the conversation where your input will have true meaning and impact!

The PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) assessment was designed to provide clear information on your child’s progress toward meeting grade level expectations, and mastering important skills like critical thinking.  The score report gives you a snapshot of how your child is progressing and shows where he or she excels or needs more support.  This information, along with grades, teacher feedback and scores on other assessments administered throughout the school year, help give a more complete picture of how well your child is performing academically.
