Incoming 9-R superintendent to hold meet and greet

School district to offer Zoom forum that will include questions from residents

A community meet and greet will be held on Zoom with incoming Durango School District 9-R Superintendent Karen Cheser from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Cheser will begin in July, and the online forum is an opportunity to hear from her about her vision and initial plans.

Community members can also post questions to ask Cheser.

The forum will be moderated, and moderators will present questions to Cheser.

The Zoom link is available on the 9-R website.

Cheser was selected unanimously in March by the Durango School District 9-R Board of Education to be the next superintendent.

Cheser comes to Durango from Fort Thomas Independent Schools in Fort Thomas, Kentucky, a suburb of Cincinnati.

Before leading the Fort Thomas schools, Cheser was deputy superintendent and chief academic officer for Boone County Schools in Kentucky. Boone County Schools has about 25,000 students and is the third largest district in the state.

Cheser has told The Durango Herald: “Hopefully, within the next few weeks, I will have had a chance to meet many, many people who work in 9-R and the community. I’m trying hard not to push myself on people since I am not the superintendent yet. But I think it’s extremely important that I learn as much as possible and get to know as many people as possible before I get there.”
