District Staff Begins Intensive Trainings to Implement New Management Software for the District

This spring, Archuleta School District's Administration office staff has begun the herculean task of learning, training and implementing a new and powerful Technology, Infinite Visions, that will be used to bridge information across the District and will improve and increase processes district-wide. Thank you, District office staff, for all of your efforts to ensure that our school district runs effectively and smoothly. Although you work tirelessly to serve all schools behind the scenes daily-you all are greatly appreciated daily.

ASD Offers Rapid COVID-19 Tests for Staff and Students

Rapid testing is now available at all ASD schools. Staff & students (with parental consent) can now receive rapid testing. Tests will show results in 15 minutes and will be a great tool to help the District keep students and staff safe, healthy and in school.

Help us fight COVID-19 - TOGETHER
