Commissioner's School Visits
Plateau School District RE-5
Nov. 18, 2009
Today I visited Plateau School District in Peetz, Colo., a small rural district near the Nebraska border. The district welcomed a new superintendent this year, Ben Dutton. I visited the district to meet Mr. Dutton and congratulate the district for continually being one of the top performers in the state based on Colorado Student Assessment results.
Local school board members and teachers stayed late to meet with me for a
question and answer session.
