2015 November Election
The Rangely School District will have three Board of Director's seats up for election in the November 3, 2015 election.  The call for nominations will be August 5, 2015, at which time nomination packets will be available to pick up at the District Office, 402 W Main, Rangely, CO 81648.
 
Weighted GPA - UPDATE
A grade point average (GPA) is a calculation used by Rangely School District RE-4 to represent a student's academic performance. The District currently uses a 4.0 GPA scale where A=4.0, B=3.0, C=2.0, D=1.0 and F=0.0 to make calculations. The District is considering a weighted GPA for college and high school Advanced Placement (AP) courses which is based on the simple idea that these classes are harder and more rigorous and should carry more weight. A typical mode on a 4-point grade scale might look like this:

High school AP/College Courses: A(5 points); B(4 points);C(3 points); D(1 point); F(0 points)

Regular Courses: A(4 points); B(3 points); C(2 points); D(1 point); F(0 points)

We recently sought input from the community and had 77 responses to our short survey.  Based on the positive response along with input from our Board of Education we are now developing a policy that will allow for a weighted GPA in Rangely School District RE-4.

Fighting for our Kids!
During last year’s legislative session, our community voices’ were critical in convincing lawmakers to begin restoring a small portion of the funding that has been cut from our schools.  The Board of Education continues to fight for our kids and joins with other boards throughout the state in adopting the attached resolution urging the State Legislature to honor the intent and language of Amendment 23 by prioritizing the reduction of the Negative Factor and to leave decisions regarding how those funds are spent to locally elected school boards.

Resolution
 
New Dance Dress Code
The Board of Education has provided clarification on what is appropriate attire for dances.  This relaxes portions of the school dress code policy for dances and provides guidance for students.  As always, the Principal has the final say at the dance.
