You can contact us at (970) 970-565-7522

Our goal is to be the #1 rural district where teachers want to work because they are valued and developed, are part of a dynamic team, have opportunities for leadership, and are making a difference every day in their students’ ability to reach their potential. We’re looking for people who are interested in working with diverse and high needs populations and are committed to closing the achievement gap.

Educator development and support - We are committed to growing our team of effective educators by providing opportunities for growth and professional development and opportunities for leadership.  

  • New teacher supports – we are committed to supporting the success of all our new teachers through new teacher professional development and coaching using the Get Better Faster framework, opportunities to visit and learn from our most effective teachers in our lab classrooms, and a peer mentor in your building.   We want you to be successful and to be able to support our students in their success. 
  • Teacher growth and leadership – we are committed to providing all our teachers with ongoing opportunities for growth including opportunities for leadership.  Each of our schools has multiple teacher teams that provide input to and lead the various initiatives in the school.  The instructional leadership team is comprised of teacher leaders that provide guidance to the overall school improvement plan, teacher professional development and other key initiatives.  
  • Aspiring leaders – we provide opportunities for teachers and others interested in growing their skills to become instructional coaches, Assistant Principals, or Principals.  Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about these opportunities.
  • Principal and Assistant principal leadership development – we are committed to the idea that we are all both learners and leaders.  The district provides ongoing professional development to our leaders in instructional best practices, coaching, school improvement, team building, and overall leadership.
