Board of Education

Swearing InLori Isenberger - Thank youAward

The mission of the Salida School District, in active partnership with family and community, is to ensure that each and every student is prepared to succeed in life, by providing quality instruction and progressive curriculum in a secure and challenging environment which will empower students with the skills necessary to achieve their greatest potential.

The Salida School Board is a group of volunteer citizens that have dedicated themselves to ensure that the heart of the community, the schools, are healthy. They oversee policies, systems and the superintendent. They do not oversee the minutia of classroom activity. Citizens concerned with individual student needs should contact the teacher and principal. The board loves input from other community members as they try to represent what the school is and should be to Salida at large. Board policies are posted at the Colorado Association of School Boards.

All Board of Education meetings are public meetings and the community is always welcome.  There are BOE Meeting Protocols for participating in the meeting.  Participants are encouraged to understand those protocols so that his or her voice can be best heard. Agendas are posted by the Friday prior to the Regular Board Meeting.
