Since November the district has been busy hiring architects, negotiating property acquisition, and celebrating a project that will change the face of the districts 11 traditional schools.In addition to traditional schools, RE-1 operates Bridges High School (an alternative high school in Glenwood Springs), the Carbondale Community School (a K-8 charter school in Carbondale), and a K-5 Montessori strand at Carbondale Elementary School.Each community has a high school, middle school, and at least one elementary school.The RE in RE-1 stands for re-organized, which the district was in 1959 along with just about every district in the state.
