After six months, 36 community meetings, and more than 6,800 engaged participants, Durango School District 9-R’s Board of Education approved a Portrait of a Graduate plan on May 24, 2022. It will guide the district as a “north star” to prepare students for life after school. When students graduate, that’s really just the beginning.
Our hearts go out to the families, students, staff, and first responders impacted by the horrific act of targeted school violence at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Acts of targeted school violence can increase after a tragedy and before and after holidays. As the school year winds down, it is paramount that we revisit, reinforce, and strengthen our school safety practices and processes.
