2022-2023 Garfield Re-2 Strategic Planning Process

Thank you for stopping by. We are glad you are interested in learning more about the strategic planning process.

The Garfield Re-2 School District has engaged the Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) to assist the district in a comprehensive strategic planning process. The District is working to develop a community-based strategic plan that  sets a future direction for the work of the district. This process will invite community members, parents, students, educators, and district staff to drive the direction of this plan. 

The process will officially begin with a Board of Education listening session, but that is just the beginning.

In August and September, CEI will conduct several listening sessions, both virtually and in person, to gather information, feedback, hopes, dreams and questions from families, community and staff.

This is where we need your help.

we need you

There are several opportunities for you to help shape the Garfield Re-2 Strategic Plan.

Dates and times for listening sessions will be coming soon - beginning around August 22. Many will be virtual, so you can participate from the comfort of your home.

We want to know:
• What makes Garfield Re-2 a great place? What binds us together?

• What skills should an exceptional graduate leave with?
