Dear Patrons of Bayfield School District,
Welcome to 2019-2020!
We are pleased you have chosen to be a part of the Bayfield School District family. We are confident you will find the Bayfield community and our schools a rewarding place to live, to work, and to thrive.
The Bayfield School District is a caring and compassionate education system with a long history of high expectations for all children as each day we collaborate on personalized learning opportunities to meet the diverse needs of all our students and our families.
From the beginning of the redevelopment of the strategic plan, to forging new partnerships, to implementing new curricular resources in our classrooms, we are future-focused and innovating across the district. I am thankful our staff is embracing our immersion in learning and teaching, and we are beginning the conversations about continuous improvement to align our systems, celebrating our progress, and keeping Bayfield Schools a future-focused district of attraction.
Thew Pine River Valley and the Bayfield School District are growing and partnering in new ways to keep our valley the most vibrant community in La Plata County.
Higher Education Partnership with Pueblo Community College
Opening in August, we are excited to realize a dream to make Bayfield a college town. I am thankful for the hard work of our district staff to make this collaboration possible. Below are links to news articles about the partnership. Look for a community grand opening and ribbon cutting in September.

Strategic Planning Gains Momentum
On behalf of our all-volunteer and hard-working Board of Education, thanks to everyone who completed our initial strategic planning survey and who attended an in-person feedback meeting. Please know this feedback has been the cornerstone to inform our strategic planning update, and more importantly, inform and continue the excellence in Bayfield School District.
Our staff and Board of Education has narrowed the plan to four key areas for developing the plan.
The four areas include:
- Our Students: Academic Achievement , Personalized Learning
- Our Community: Family, and Community Relationships
- Our People: Workplace Environment
- Our Well-Being: Social-Emotional Support
With sincere appreciation,
