Re-1 focus groups to meet this month

Roaring Fork School District Re-1 released its meeting schedule Monday for focus groups that will help the school board find a replacement for retiring Superintendent Fred Wall.

The Re-1 school board decided Oct. 12 to form the focus groups, which will discuss the strengths of the school district and what qualities are needed in a superintendent.

The district will invite approximately 200 participants from throughout the district to be divided into 15 focus groups composed of up to about 15 people each, said Cyndy Hallford, the school board’s administrative assistant.

Hallford said the district is soliciting members of the community to participate, but it will cap community volunteer participation to about 15 representatives from each town, including Glenwood Springs, Carbondale and Basalt.

The focus groups will meet for about 90 minutes each Oct. 25-27 beginning with groups of district employees.

The Basalt community group meets at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Basalt High School Media Center. Re-1 middle school parents will meet at 7 p.m. Oct. 26 in the school library.

Also at 7 p.m. on Oct. 26, elementary school parents and Glenwood Springs residents will meet in the Glenwood Springs Elementary School library.

Re-1 high school parents will meet at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Eagle County Community Center in El Jebel, followed by Carbondale and Glenwood community focus groups at 7 p.m. in the Roaring Fork High School library and the Glenwood Springs High School library.

Community members can participate by invitation only. To volunteer, Hallford said to call her office at (970) 384-6009.
