State Rep. Bob Rankin was so impressed by the results he saw in a recent meeting with CU-Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano, he asked Diana Sirko, superintendent of Roaring Fork School District, to coauthor this article about RFSD’s successful Pre-Collegiate program.
When our nation was formed, our forefathers had a vision of public schools for all that would create an opportunity for every one of our children to become educated and have access to a future to match their dreams. It’s especially satisfying to be able to share the successes of a unique program that is delivering on that promise of opportunity.
As our four district high schools in the Roaring Fork School District completed the last academic year, we had the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments and graduation of the class of 2014. As all of these fine young men and women left us to pursue future endeavors, we also recognized the accomplishments of the students who participated in the Roaring Fork Pre-Collegiate Program.
