In the modern world, Pueblo City Schools (D60) has to meet students where they are. And some of them are in cyberspace.
District officials have announced plans to launch Dutch Clark Digital Online Learning this fall. The initiative, named after the standout athlete and Central High School graduate whose name also graces the school district’s sports stadium, will provide new learning opportunities for students who may not be comfortable in traditional classroom settings.
Rich Mestas, administrator and principal of the online school, is expecting an initial enrollment of about 125 to 150 high school students, with more students joining over time. It’s a project the district has been working on for three years. And it’s very timely.
