Hello Prospective School Board Member:

We are very glad you took the time visit us. There is no higher calling, no greater legacy than to support the education of future generations.

If you choose to apply for our vacant school board seat, sit on a school or district accountability committee, or just spend a bit more time in our schools due to this process, you will not be disappointed.

Garfield Re-2 School District is home to more than 800 of the finest educators, administrators and staff members you will find anywhere in Colorado. More importantly, we have over 4,800 of the greatest children enrolled anywhere.

If you would like to apply for our vacant school board position, there are a few things you need to know:

You must live in Director District B (which generally includes):

the north-eastern portion of the City of Rifle north of Morrow and Firethorn Drives, east of Whiteriver Avenue ane extending easterly, north of Highway 6 & 24 and west of North 1st Street (aka Silt Mesa Road);

and generally includes the neighborhoods of:

Arabian Heights, Deerfield Park, North Pastures, Promontory, Rifle Creek Estates (in Rifle) and most of Silt Mesa including Peterson Lane, Miller Lane, and Ukele Lane.  

It is YOUR responsibility to review the maps, the legal description and call our District Office to be sure you live in District B.

  • You must be a registered voter as shown on the books of the county clerk and recorder for at least 12 consecutive months prior to the appointment, be 18 years or older, and be a citizen of the United States.
  • You must submit a letter of interest to Garfield Re-2 School District so that it arrives in our offices no later than 5 p.m. September 14, 2020.  Attn: Anne Guettler, Director District B vacancy, 839 Whiteriver Ave., Rifle, CO 81650. 
  • Because this is an appointment, the successful candidate will need to run in the 2021 School Board election to retain the Director B seat for a 2-year term. The candidate may choose to run again in 2023 for the seat’s regular 4-year term.

Interviews for the Director B appointment will be on September 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the Garfield Re-2 School Board office - 839 Whiteriver Ave., Rifle, CO. 

In this packet you will find some general information from the Colorado Association of School Boards describing how school boards operate, our school board meeting dates and links to the Director District maps.

Thank you for your interest.

The Garfield Re-2 Board of Directors
