Daily Announcements

From the Desk of the Superintendent

The first half of the 2014-2015 School Year has been productive and very positive, filled with many positive accomplishments. We saw our accreditation status with the Colorado Department of Education raised two categories based on student achievement from the previous year and we ended the cycle of deficit spending;  under the direction of Mrs. Bohlander, for the first time in many years.

We worked together to implement  a $208,000 grant from a Targeted Improvement Grant to plan an improvement strategy and the staff has all responded in a positive change that has improved student performance… there are just good staff at Manzanola.  

We implemented a 4 day school week to curtail operating costs and to ensure the future of Manzanola Schools.  We have over half a dozen students that have not missed a day of school this year so far… there are good kids at Manzanola. The small Manzanola community has so many benefits for education and our students and educators are products of this positive force.

We gave the 12th grade CMAS assessment for the State of Colorado and our kids were attentive and tried hard. Many Schools and Districts had walk outs and picketing and our students heard about it and stayed on task as only 60 percent of the state’s seniors tested -the Manzanola students all tested… there are just good kids at Manzanola


Our school has been awarded the USDA National School Lunch Program Equipment Assistance Grant totaling $14,929.00.  With these funds our school will be allowed to purchase equipment to:

  • Serve healthier meals that meet the updated meal patterns
  • Provide more fruits and vegetables in school meals
  • Improve food safety
  • Expand access
  • Increase participation in School Food Authority (SFA) Food Service Fund
  • Improve the energy efficiency of the school food service operations
