9-R Receives Thrive! Living Wage Coalition Designation

On August 28, 2018, Darren White, executive director of La Plata County Thrive Living Wage Coalition presented a Living Wage Employer designation to the Board of Education. La Plata County Thrive exists to partner with willing and capable organizations to work toward the goal of economic self-sufficiency for their employees. Durango School District 9-R was able to reach this designation and increase wages for staff thanks to the direct support the community has shown the district, specifically through the most recent 3A Mill Levy, which voters passed in 2016 with nearly 65% support.
