Dear parent,

This is GREAT NEWS for South Conejos School District!

Each school in Colorado is assigned an overall school performance rating every year based on student performance and growth on state assessments. Graduation rates and college matriculation are also considered for high schools.

Based on our school’s performance and growl on the 2018 assessments given last spring, our District was given a preliminary rating of Improvement, this is really great news because we were previously at Priority Improvement. The increase in academic growth has now taken the district off of the “Accountability Clock”.

We will continue to use our Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) to provide us with a focused improvement plan, including an analysis of student performance data and a detailed action plan to guide continuous improvement. The plan must incorporate ideas and feedback from parents, be approved by the South Conejos Board of Education, and be submitted to the Colorado Department of Education on or before January 15, 2019 for review.

Our School Accountability Committee will hold a public meeting to gather input from parents concerning the development of the plan this fall. Prior to adopting a plan, our school board will hold a public hearing during the regular board meeting in December to review the plan.

If you have any questions about our overall school performance rating or how you can get
involved in our improvement, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Dr. Emma Rae Martinez, Superintendent
