Superintendent's Message

By David Ulrich Ed. D.


Parents of Moffat County School District students,

In preparation for the 2017-18 school year, the ​proposed calendar includes​ starting a week earlier for students. Specifically, students would start on Monday, August 21.  The proposed calendar does not interfere with the 2017 Moffat ​County Fair. The 2017-18 school year would end a week earlier as well.

 ​This option has multiple specific advantages:

  • First and second semesters would be more even. The current calendar has 79 days in the first semester and 92 days in the second semester. The proposed calendar would have 84 days in the first semester and 87 days in the second semester.
  • The proposed calendar would match up with the majority of western slope districts. 
  • Starting a week earlier would match up with Colorado Northwest Community College's start of the year.  This would be an advantage for our junior and senior students concurrently enrolled in dual credit classes.
  • Starting earlier would allow us an additional week for teachers to ensure our students are as prepared as possible on the standards they are assessed on in the spring.

Using the information provided in this letter, the Board of Education and I would like to know whether this change will have an impact on you and your family.  Please take time to fill out a brief survey:

It is my intention to take the 2017-18 calendar to the Board of Education for approval on Thursday, 27 April.   

Thank you and have a great day!

Padres de los estudiantes del Distrito Escolar del Condado de Moffat


Calendario propuesto para el año escolar 2017-2018

 En preparación para el año escolar 2017-18, el calendario propuesto incluye empezar una semana antes para los estudiantes. Específicamente, los estudiantes empezarían el lunes, 21 de agosto. El calendario propuesto no interfiere con la Feria del Condado de Moffat 2017. El año escolar 2017-18 terminaría una semana antes también.

  Esta opción tiene múltiples ventajas específicas:

·      Primer y segundo semestres sería más par. El calendario actual tiene 79 días en el primer semestre y        92 días en el segundo semestre. El calendario propuesto tendría 84 días en el primer semestre y 87          días en el segundo semestre.

·      El calendario propuesto coincidiría con la mayoría de los distritos del Western Slope.

·      Comenzar una semana anterior se correspondería con el inicio de Colorado Northwest Community         College del año. Esto sería una ventaja para nuestros estudiantes junior y senior concurrentemente            matriculados en clases de crédito dual.

·      Comenzar antes nos permitiría una semana adicional para que los maestros se aseguren de que               nuestros estudiantes estén lo más preparados posible sobre los estándares en los que son                        evaluados en la primavera.

Usando la información proporcionada en esta carta, la Junta de Educación y yo querríamos saber si este cambio tendrá un impacto en usted y su familia. Tómese su tiempo para completar una breve encuesta:

 Tengo la intención de llevar el calendario 2017-18 a la Junta de Educación para su aprobación el jueves 27 de abril.

 ¡Gracias y que tengas un buen día!
