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.
Please complete one survey per child at Riverview. The questions below have been taken off of the annual spring district wide parent survey. These particular questions are ones that will help Riverview measure school improvement and are questions we feel should have high positive response ratings. We will conduct this survey twice (fall and winter), with a spring survey being the more expansive district wide survey. Results will be shared out at PTO and on our website. Thank you for your time in completing it.
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.
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!
