As Durango School District 9-R continues to grow, it is important for the district to receive input from community stakeholders so that the district may expand in a direction supported by our taxpayers and community members. To assist in this process the 9-R Board of Education has convened the Durango 9-R Long-Range Planning Committee to review existing district facilities and set a vision for renovations and new facilities.
The goal of the Long-Range Planning Committee is to provide recommendations, looking at both five and ten years out, for the design of a school system that reflects the Board's vision, in light of area population changes while taking into consideration staffing, budget, facilities, resources, and educational and co-curricular programs.
At the June 24, 2020 Board of Education meeting, the Long-Range Planning team made their final recommendations to the board after meeting for 18 months. The team will disband and the board is reviewing the recommendations for consideration. Please see the document below for the full recommendation from the committee.
