National School Bus Safety Week If the IFHS band is heading to a competition or the Skyline football team is going to an out-of-town game, chances are good Steve Jorde is at the wheel. He drives D91’s activity buses, and fills in on different routes. As the first school adult many children see each day, Steve prides himself on greeting students with a warm greeting and a smile. “I love working with kids, and I know we can make or break their day,” he says.

Idaho Literacy ProgramOne of D91's goals is to ensure all our students are proficient in reading. Idaho's new literacy intervention program is designed to help students who are not meeting important reading benchmarks. In D91, individualized reading plans will be created for all students in grades K-3 who are not reading at grade level and receive a 1 or 2 on the Idaho Reading Indictor. The plans will include specific interventions to address each child's individual needs and help them improve their reading skills. Learn More

hs redesign classroomThe Board of Trustees is continuing to review various options for updating and modernizing Idaho Falls and Skyline high schools. Based on the cost estimates of the redesigns, board members feel it makes sense to explore the idea of a redesign of Skyline and the replacement of Idaho Falls High School. Before any final decisions can be made, board members have identified some key questions that need to be answered: Those questions include: Where would a new high school be located if it were built? What would happen to the current IFHS building? What would be included in the redesign of Skyline? The board will continue working on these issues in the coming weeks. The ultimate goal is to create schools that support the kind of engaging and relevant instruction our teachers are striving to deliver.  See Hummel Architects' final report on the various proposals, as well as cost estimates from Bateman Hall and financial considerations from financial consultants.  The goal is to redesign the buildings so they can support the instruction needed to ensure our graduates have the knowlege, skills and attributes they need to be successful beyond high school. View Conceptual Floor Plans.  Learn More
