support for student learning


Colorado Digital Learning Solutions (CDLS) is the statewide online-learning nonprofit responsible for our district's remote learning students. Due to very high levels of registration across the state, our middle and high school online start dates changed to:

  • Elementary start date: Wednesday, August 26
  • Secondary start date: Tuesday, September 1

Students have a window of time in which they can switch from remote learning to in-person education. Deadlines to switch:

  • Elementary deadline: Friday, September 4
  • Secondary deadline: Friday, September 11

Getting Started with Your Student's Online Learning

Semester-long remote learning and temporary online learning will be rewarding (and sometimes challenging, we know) this year.  Parents, students, and teachers will need to learn new technical skills, and draw on personal skills like determination, in order to succeed.

The District is committed to partnering with CDLS to provide a quality online education to your students. RE-1 teachers will provide additional support to students who may need extra help, in addition to what CDLS can provide.

We are excited to start working with high shool and middle school students online starting on September 1! Your student’s schedule will be available shortly and your student should be receiving emails from CDLS to ensure they are able to access the online program.

Please make sure to check your student’s email regularly and feel free to reach out to our new district site coordinator, Janelle Hoffman, at, if you have any questions.

Below are answers to some frequently asked questions about how to get started this year. Don't worry, you got this!
