Colorado Academic Standards

Durango School District 9-R uses the Colorado Academic Standards as a foundation of our guaranteed and viable curriculum. The Colorado Academic Standards are the outcomes we promise to every student.

Student Achievement Data

We continually monitor our student and system results to ensure that we are on track to realize this mission. At 9-R, we believe every student deserves to have a solid academic foundation that opens the window of opportunity for any career in which they are interested. They also deserve to have experiences that help them understand their talents, interests, and possible future career options.

Sunnyside offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum, based on the Colorado Academic Standards, to all students in preschool through fifth grade.  Sunnyside strives to make a rewarding impact in each child's life by ensuring they all reach their highest potential.  Here at Sunnyside, we believe that the improved academic achievement of each student is a shared responsibility among all the adults in the child's life and the child.  By working together, we provide our students with a strong foundation for success.
