School district Unified Improvement Plan released

The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) recently released Archuleta School District’s (ASD) Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) for the 2014-2015 school year.

In an interview last week, Assistant Superintendent David Hamilton explained the UIP is one component of ongoing assessments and not strict goals for this specific school year.
