Discover What the Community ThinksParents, patrons, students and D91 staff recently took part in a community outreach effort to provide input on the Board of Trustees' ideas about how to update and modernize Idaho Falls and Skyline high schools. The board's current direction includes: a ReDesign Skyline High School, a ReBuild Idaho Falls High School on a new site, and a RePurposing of the existing IFHS building to meet other district and community needs.

We're excited to report we had 1,217 individuals take part in this community engagement effort. They shared 2,757 thoughts and assigned 61,787 starts to highlight their top priorities. We are eager to share those results .... DISCOVER what the community thinks. Thank you to all who participated and shared their voice.

The board is expected to make final decisions about the HS ReDesign Project in May. We will keep you posted as board members work through this process. Learn More About The HS ReDesign Project Questions? Send them to us.

Help your child become a good readerThere are lots of things you can do to help your child learn the basic skills they need to become proficient readers. The first step is for children to learn their letters and letter sounds, and then they start blending those sounds to create words. Singing songs, reading rhyming books and saying silly tongue twisters are some ways you can help your child to become more sensitive to the different sounds in words.
