Welcome to Weld Re-8 School District

 Weld Re-8 STRONG   

Good Morning Parents and Guardians:  With the recent school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas this morning, we are on heightened security today at our schools.  We are thankful to the community for their continued support of our schools and students. 

Weld Re-8 Families,

With the Board of Education vote to create an enrollment boundary for the Homyak PK-8 School, there will be no changes to the current transportation guidelines next year.  We will continue to provide bussing for students outside of the Homyak enrollment area.

Attention Parents:  Due to the construction schedule for this summer, Twombly, Butler and Quest will end the current school year on Wednesday, May 16th.  Little Trappers Preschool, Fort Lupton Middle School and Fort Lupton High School will end on May 18th as originally scheduled.  Thank you for your patience!

On April 9, 2018, the Board of Education unanimously passed a change in the Homyak PK-8 School of Choice designation.  After careful study and research, Weld Re-8 placed attendance boundaries for students based on the location of the school.  Please click the link below to see the boundaries that were approved.

This change ensures every student’s ability to attend the school closest to him or her, but it does not change a student’s continuing opportunity to enroll in the school of his or her choice. All schools in the Weld Re-8 School District are Open Enrollment schools, and we encourage parents and students to look into what makes each of our schools unique. We want each student to feel a sense of pride in the school that he or she has chosen.  

The decision to make all Weld Re-8 schools Open Enrollment Boundary Schools will not affect current Quest students’ ability to enroll in Homyak PK-8.

Please contact me with any questions you may have.

Weld Re-8 families,

As we enter the last few days of our school year, I want to take the time to thank you for your support this school year, and especially over the past few weeks and months. Our voters passed a Bond issue in November 2016 for which we, as a District, continue to be grateful for and deeply appreciative. I know fresh in each of our memories is April 27, 2018, when we cancelled school for our students due to the teacher walkout in support of Initiative 93. On that Friday, some 500,000 students across the State were not in school due to this increasing call to action. While it is not what anyone hoped for, it is time for our legislators to fully fund our students’ education.

Colorado currently ranks 42nd in the nation in per pupil funding.

  • In Colorado, we fund our students at an average of $2,500 per student less than the national average – not the upper end of the scale - average
  • Only two states, Oklahoma and Arizona, spend less than Colorado on services for students with special needs.
  • Despite constitutional protections designed to protect public school funding in Colorado, public schools have been underfunded by billions of dollars since 2008.  
  • Colorado ranked 50th of all states and the District of Columbia in how teacher pay compares to that of other college-educated workers.
  • 95 percent of teacher salaries are below the standard of living in rural Colorado.
  • Colorado is experiencing a significant teacher shortage.  This is compounded in that close to 20% of teachers leave the profession within the first five years, citing low pay and low public regard as two leading reasons for leaving the profession.
  • It is estimated that there is close to $18 billion dollars in school construction needs across the state.

We are entering the summer construction phase to all of our schools. The goal is to have 100% completion on all of the remodels/builds by the time we return to school on August 27, 2018 at Butler and Twombly with Homyak, Fort Lupton Middle School and Fort Lupton High School set to begin on August 20, 2018.

All of our state assessments are completed, and I am including the School Performance Frameworks for each building and District for you to view. I invite you to learn about your school and the quality of education your children receive in Weld Re-8.

I am thankful for each of you in our Weld Re-8 family and look forward to the end of the year celebrations including Fort Lupton High School Graduation on Saturday, May 26, 2018 at 10:00 A.M. at our stadium.

Alan
