Our district's progress

How are we doing?

Durango School District 9-R continually monitors our student and system results to ensure that we are on track to realize our mission. Each year our district compiles Results Reports in four major categories to measure our progress. The four categories are: Mission, Academic Achievement, Social and Emotional Learning, and Portrait of a Graduate.
