Montezuma-Cortez schools will appeal performance rating

District accredited at ‘priority improvement’ for sixth straight year
Montezuma-Cortez RE-1 Superintendent Lori Haukeness says she’s “very confident” that the district’s appeal to the Colorado Department of Education will raise the school’s performance rating.
School accreditation

The Colorado Department of Education rates districts and individual schools on a five-tier accreditation system. The highest rating is “distinction,” followed by “performance,” “improvement,” “priority improvement” and “turnaround.”
The “accountability clock” allows schools and districts to spend up to five consecutive years at the “priority improvement” and “turnaround” levels before they face state intervention.
Below are 2016 assessments for the Montezuma-Cortez Re-1 district and individual schools and area charter schools. For schools currently on the accountability clock, the value in parentheses refers to the number of years the school has spent on the clock.
