BOUNDARIES: Primarily Pueblo city limits.

OVERVIEW:
Pueblo School District 60 primarily serves the youth within the city of Pueblo. There are approximately 17,500 students served by 37 schools: 22 elementary schools, 6 middle schools, 5 high schools and 4 charter schools. The profile of the student body reflects 62% minority students and 61% of the students qualifying for free and reduced lunch programs.

We are teachers, support personnel, administrators, school board members, parents and community members concerned about improving student learning. Our goals are to: improve student achievement for ALL students; improve teacher effectiveness; promote continuous professional development and build leadership effectiveness. And collectively we have built an impressive track record. Pueblo School District 60 has been recognized repeatedly by President Bush, U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige, Lynn Cheney and Governor Owens for our success in closing the ‘achievement gap’ for minority and lower-economic students. In the March 2004 issue of U.S. News and World Report, which focused on public education progress on the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, District 60 and Beulah Heights Elementary School were featured as “Schools of Excellence’ in reporting how certain Title 1 schools are making a difference for students. Baca Elementary was recently recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School by President Bush while Sunset Park received the John Irwin School of Excellence and Irving and Fountain Elementary schools were awarded the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award. In recent years Carlile and South Park Elementary schools were the recipient of the Regional Title 1 Distinguished School while Beulah Heights and Bessemer Elementary schools won the prestigious National Distinguished Title 1 School award.

Individual staff achievement has also been recognized with 3 District 60 principals receiving high honors as Colorado Principals of the Year: in 2004 Alan Nelms as principal at Heaton Middle School and in 2003 Dr. Kathy DeNiro as principal for Corwin Middle School and Dr. Keith Owen as principal at Beulah Heights Elementary. In 2003 Superintendent Dr. Joyce Bales and Dr. Keith Owen were one of only eight districts and schools invited by President Bush to the White House for the anniversary of the No Child Left Behind legislation. In fact, U.S. Secretary of Education Paige has stated “School officials can look to Pueblo and District 60 Superintendent Joyce Bales to see how to improve student achievement.” In a report by the National Education Trust, 20 schools in Colorado were identified as being high performing while having high minority and high poverty student populations – 6 of those 20 schools were in District 60! In the most recent state assessment testing (CSAP) District 60 has shown an overall Hispanic gain of 50% in students scoring ‘proficient and above’ compared to other students whose scores averaged a 28% increase. District 60 Hispanic students show a gain of 45% over other Hispanic students in Colorado. Seven of the eight D60 schools that exceeded the state average on all CSAP tests had 50% or more students who qualify for free and reduced lunch. Two schools exceeded the state average on all 17 tests taken and they are both Title 1 schools: Cesar Chavez Academy and Goodnight School. Title 1 schools have made an astonishing 372% increase in 4th grade writing over 8 years and a 98% increase in 4th grade writing over 8 years – these are the two tests given over the longest period of time. This significant student improvement has engendered a sense of trust in the District which has resulted in the single largest investment to support the youth of Pueblo – a $98 million bond program to improve the District’s aging school facilities. The bond program is nearing the half way point and is on track both financially and regarding timeline.
