Weld Re-8 Families,

I hope you are enjoying the summer with your students. Summer is a busy time of year for the District with the closing of our budgetary fiscal year on June 30, 2018. We have a multitude of State and Federal requirements to finalize as we close the fiscal year. We have created a Proposed Budget for the School year 2018-2019, and we have placed a link to it on our website. I would encourage you to spend time in review and send any questions to me at We will host a public hearing on June 11, 2018 at 6:00 PM in the Administration Building, and the Board will vote on the Final Budget on Monday, June 25, 2018.

Many changes have occurred at the District Office this month. Mr. BJ Buchmann has resigned as Assistant Superintendent and will not return for the upcoming School year. In addition, Ms. Gayle Dunlap has retired as Executive Director of Student Achievement and so will not return next year as well. We have created a new organizational chart that includes Directors of Instruction and Learning one each for Elementary and Secondary. In the reorganization, there will not be an Assistant Superintendent or Executive Director. I made this decision based upon the need for an intense focus on instruction and best practices for the students in our District. The new Directors are Marci Hester, (current Principal at the High School), and Ken Trager, who comes to Weld Re-8 with many years of experience in the administrative area as well as in instruction and learning. In regards to the High School Principal position, we are in the process of accepting applications to serve on the interview committee on June 20, 2018. The High School will issue information regarding the search process, however, if you are interested in serving on this Committee, please forward your interest to me ( or Debra Oliver (

This summer is a unique and hectic time for us with the continued Bond Builds at Twombly, Butler, the High School, and Homyak. We are very early in the summer building process, and I will keep you updated on the progress throughout the summer. Thank you for your continued support and patience.

Enjoy your summer with your students and encourage them, as always, to read. Please visit the High Plains Library website to view current Fort Lupton Library hours and the dates of the temporary relocation of our Library as construction updates are completed within that space.
