District boundaries topic of Moffat County school board special session

Craig Press staff report

CRAIG — Discussion of school attendance and school board district boundaries top the agenda for a special session of the Moffat County School District Board of Education, set to begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6, in the  Cedar Mountain Conference Room at Colorado Northwestern Community College 2801 W. Ninth Street.

Attendance boundaries are being changed to help assign students currently attending East Elemantary to Sunset and Sandrock elementary schools. The board tabled a decision to accept boundaries recommended by school closure consultants, The Blyth Group, at its meeting in January to allow the presentation of more information, including a closer look at bus routes. A new boundary proposed for Maybell and Dinosaur/Rangely will also be discussed.

Other boundaries up for discussion are those used to determine board of education representation. Currently, Moffat County is divided into seven geographic districts, with each district designated a seat, and board members must live within the district they represent. The seat for District 6 has been vacant since November — one reason the board decided to review the current district structure. Any changes will require voter approval.

The board will also learn more about the Interest Based Strategies Team and committee structure. Members will also preview the 2018-19 academic calendar and budget, receive an update on the work of the school closure teacher redeployment team and preview progress on the Balanced Scorecard — the annual goals from the district strategic plan.
