COLORADO SPRINGS SCHOOL DISTRICT 11

Colorado Springs, CO 80903
Communications and Community Relations - 520-2005
Superintendent: Norm Ridder
On the Web - www.cssd11.k12.co.us

BOUNDARIES: The area's largest school district encompasses the core of Colorado Springs. Maps of school boundaries are on the district’s Web site, or call 520-2942 for information.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR: District 11 is on a “Quest to be the Best” for our children.  We have just revised the current strategic plan to ensure all goals and measures are aligned throughout the district.  Each department, school and classroom will have specific goals and measures aligned to the strategic plan.  The goal is to have systemwide implementation by 2005.

The District 11 strategic plan is about continuous improvement.  All individuals in the system are dedicated to self-improvement.  Students and staff explore hidden talents, build on successes and continually re-assess their learning potential.

For a copy of District 11’s strategic plan, go to the D-11 Web site at www.cssd11.k12.co.us  or call Judy McIntire at 520-2005.
