Achievement… D.E.F. raises almost $120,000 in the C.A.F.E. campaign, awards more than $60,000 in additional grants, administers $18,500 in scholarships–all for the benefit of Durango School District 9-R classrooms and students
Innovation… D.E.F. nominates programs that demonstrate original thinking and ground-breaking approaches for the prestigious Bank of Colorado Award for Innovation
Excellence… D.E.F. recognizes Durango 9-R educators for their dedication to the highest practices in education with the Outstanding Teachers and Outstanding Staff Members awards–seven are chosen, and all 147 nominees are noted as “9-R Stars”
The Durango Education Foundation promotes these attributes, and we live them. Thank you to everyone who joined with us to support the dedicated educators and students of Durango School District 9-R this year.
It’s been a grand school year, and we’re not stopping here. Watch for news about the Durango 9-R Alumni Relations program, starting up soon. Back to School will be here in a heartbeat, too, and we’ll be off and running again. Meanwhile…
Enjoy your summer!
