Assessments
The Weld Re-4 School District uses multiple assessments to review student progress.  We have formal and informal methods of assessment, including classroom school specific tests.  These assessments are used to diagnose learning gaps, provide a "snapshot" of student learning, and provide staff with information needed in order to improve instruction or recommend interventions.  We strive to maintain a balance for students and staff while still complying with various legislation.  
The Current calendar of assessments is available here:  


If you have questions about any of the assessments, please contact Amy Heinsma, Director of Instruction, at (970) 686-8028 or amy.heinsma@weldre4.org 

Curriculum
The curriculum, or plan of study, is developed by teachers based on the individual needs of their students.  These are all based on the Colorado Academic standards so that students are able to demonstrate similar skills and knowledge at the end of each school year.  The district and schools provide resources as feasible so that staff is able to utilize the best materials possible.  This may include traditional textbooks, digital content, and lab equipment.  If you have questions about curriculum please contact your child's school or Amy Heinsma, Director of Instruction  at (970) 686-8028 or amy.heinsma@weldre4.org


District Accountability

The District Accountability Committee is responsible for making recommendations to the Board of Education relative to the district's program of accountability consistent with governing law and accreditation requirements. The committee meets throughout the school year working on charges approved by the Board each year. The committee is comprised of parents, non-parent tax payers, a student, teachers, and administrators. We are always looking for new members.  Contact the Committee Liaison if you are interested.  

The District Accountability Committee Liaison is:  amy.heinsma@weldre4.org
