CREEDE — The Creede School District Board of Education opened its monthly strategic meeting on Oct. 17 to discuss several topics pertaining to the district and coming events for the school.

Superintendent Keith Crispell began the meeting with an announcement of the CASB McGuffey Award Winner.

“The award honors board members who bring commitment, passion and service to their work on the board of education. This prestigious recognition is typically awarded based on criteria of a board member being actively and positively engaged in the board’s work, going above and beyond their roles and responsibilities, demonstrating a focus and having a positive influence on other board members,” explained Crispell.

The award was presented to Creede School Board President Casey Adelman for his devotion to and service of the Creede School District. Crispell congratulated Adelman and the meeting moved into the next department report which was from Finance Director Lucinda Carpenter.

Carpenter said that the district was in line with the last two years and that percentages matched closely and that though the revenue looked deceptive, it was due to transferring funds to the hot lunch fund that counts as a negative revenue. Beyond that, the district is on track with the appointed budget and projections are looking good for the remainder of the school year.

Superintendent Crispell was next on the agenda to give an update to the board. Crispell said that he attended training and CASB regional meetings where propositions II and HH were discussed. He also stated that the district’s gymnasium is now equipped with the National Federation of High School’s approved camera system that will allow people to view games remotely, which was something the district was working on for the past few months. Information for accessing the cameras will be available on the website at

Crispell said that the school’s new marque sign would be installed soon and that he met with Ciello to coordinate the installation. The sign will feature events, sporting event information, district information and more.

The next strategic meeting for the district will be held in November before the district’s holiday break for Thanksgiving and can be accessed through their website.
