2022 Spring Salida School Board

2021 School Board

The mission of the Salida School District shall be to strive to provide a safe environment for all students and staff. Meaningful opportunities and innovative educational programs shall be provided for all students so that they reach their learning potential, including the attainment of content standards, through partnerships between home, school, and the community.

The Salida School Board is a group of volunteer citizens that dedicate themselves to ensure that the heart of the community, our schools, are healthy. They oversee policies, systems and the superintendent. They do not oversee the minutia of classroom activity. Citizens concerned with individual student needs should contact the teacher and principal. The board loves input from other community members as they try to represent what the school is and should be to Salida at large. Board policies are posted at the Colorado Association of School Boards.

All Board of Education meetings are public meetings and the community is always welcome. There are BOE Meeting Protocols for participating in the meeting. Participants are encouraged to understand those protocols so that his or her voice can be best heard. Agendas are posted by the Friday prior to the Regular Board Meeting.
