Dear Students, Parents, Staff and Community,


We are off to a positive school year thanks to our prepared staff, excited students and supportive parents.  The schools are full of smiling students and staff who are celebrating the return from summer break and embracing thoughtful learning opportunities.  Thank you all for enrolling in Dolores schools.  We are at capacity, maintaining steady enrollment from last year.  “Patience, flexibility, and understanding” is our mantra this school year as we prepare for construction to begin soon.

Construction update:  We have recovered from the FEMA debacle this summer and are back on track with the construction plans.  To view plans and other construction information, please visit our website and look under the pull-down tab titled, “Construction Project.” A few of the big target dates for completion are:

·      June 2014, Locker rooms

·      August 2014, Elementary connection and classrooms

·      December 2014, Vo Ag/ CTE facility and science classrooms

Upcoming parent and/or community engagement opportunities:

·      September 5th @ 6:00-8:00pm: Open House, parents visit our schools

·      September 10th @ 7:00pm: Town Hall meeting with our school board

·      September 17th @ 4:00-5:30pm: 1338 Council/District Advisory and Accountability Committee

·      September 25th @ 7:00pm: School Board meeting

·      October 4th @ 2:30 Homecoming Parade and 7:00 Football Game!

Do you value accountability, safety and budgets?  If you said yes, please consider joining our 1338 Council, also known as the District Advisory & Accountability Committee (DAAC).  Our first meeting of this school year will be on September 17th from 4:00-5:30pm in the Board Room located at 100N 6th ST, Dolores. 

Hopes and dreams for our district drive my work and I want to be able to add yours to the vision, so please do not hesitate to share them with me.  I look forward to our future work together.


Scott Cooper, Superintendent
