In Case You Missed It (ICYM) New Chief Financial Officer is accounting for integrity Interim Re-2 CFO learning on the fly as he works to get the district finance department back on track

Change has been a recent constant at the Garfield School District Re-2 — and that was before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the county just over a month ago.

New interim Chief Financial Officer David Trautenberg hopes to bring back integrity to the financial numbers for the district before the next school year begins.

During a lengthy audit for the 2018-19 fiscal year district officials were made aware of a nearly $4 million surplus in the district’s fund balance in January.

PLEASE - Take 45 seconds and give us your feedback!!!

We know that these are certainly unique, and challenging times. There can be no doubt that our administrators and our staff were not anticipating turning our existing educational system on its head, and pivoting to online instruction. Parents and students didn't anticipate this change either.

After week one, we would like a little feedback from families to see how we can modify and continue to improve the system. Please take a moment to answer these questions and we will use the answers to help us as we move forward with our online delivery model.


Please watch your voicemail

Garfield Re-2 Families: We have many teachers using Google Voice to make phone calls to families from their District computers. As great a tool as this is for our teachers, there is one drawback - the phone calls will appear as blocked or Caller ID unavailable.

We know that there is a lot of sensitivity to answering calls are unidentified. Teachers are being asked to leave a short message letting them know they are reaching out. Please keep an eye on your voicemail if you see those kinds of messages on your phones.

Traditionally, parents and guardians are asked to complete the online portion and then finalize the registration process with an in-person follow-up meeting to provide supporting documentation. This year, families are encouraged to upload all of their supporting documentation via the online portal. School secretaries will contact registered families to follow up regarding their prospective kindergarten students.
