Trish Snyder: School district must comply with standards

To the editor:

I am writing to address concerns raised in two letters that were published in the Nov. 17 edition of the Craig Daily Press regarding the Dinosaur Charter School.

Because of those concerns, I felt the need to let the community know about Moffat County School District’s Web site,

The minutes of each meeting are on the Web site’s link to the School Board and can be accessed by anyone. Our board meetings also are open to the public and visitors are always welcome.

If there is a particular concern or issue that a member of the community has, please feel free to attend our meeting and/or read the minutes.

If you need additional information, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact members of the School Board or Pete Bergmann, superintendent of Moffat County School District.

Our mission as a School Board is to serve the best interest of each student who attends school in Moffat County. This includes the Dinosaur Charter School and the alternative school, which is in the Boys & Girls Club.

We do not oversee home-schooled children, so therefore we are unable to provide any information regarding the standards that are set by the state.

All district standards, which include the Dinosaur Charter School and the alternative school, are mandated at state and federal levels. It is our charge as a School Board to provide services to all district students, while maintaining and enforcing compliance of those state and federal standards.

Moffat County School Board member

Editor’s note: The Moffat County School District Board of Education has advised Dinosaur Charter School to comply with state and federal rules by providing services to students who need speech or language therapy or face closure.
