North Fork Reconfiguration
Please see the following release by DCSD Superintendent, Caryn Gibson:
February 26, 2020
The DCSD School Board made the difficult decision to reorganize the North Fork schools to one high school in Hotchkiss, a K-8 school in Paonia, a K-8 school in Hotchkiss, and a K-6 North Fork School of Integrated Studies in Paonia. This decision was made based on three pillars: opportunities for students, enrollment, and fiscal responsibility. The School Board spoke with deep passion and care in determining the best model to support our students and staff now and for many years to come.
The District plans to start immediately on these new configurations by establishing multiple committees to start the transition process. The committees will range from student culture, school culture, naming the school and mascot, and history of the schools. These committees will be open to members who are interested in moving the new configuration forward in a positive direction. The committees will be made up of students, staff, parents, and community members.
We look forward to turning our focus to new opportunities and continuing to support our students, our staff, and our schools. We have an amazing School District filled with amazing people!
