  • One District, One Book Starts Feb. 6

    Because of the school closures, D91's One District, One Book, our districtwide book club, is being rescheduled for Feb. 6-24. Elementary schools will hold kick-off assemblies next week and then the youngest elementary school child in every family will bring home a copy of this year's title along with a reading calendar. If you can't read together, check out our ODOB page for audio recordings you can listen to on the go. We'll also post the daily trivia questions, and the answers to the previous day's question. Research shows reading aloud together for just 15 minutes a day improves reading skills so let's read together and create a community of readers!

  • Inspiring Kids To Go On 

    D91 is proud to partner with Idaho Business for Education and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on the new Within Reach program, which highlights the importance and value of a postsecondary education, whether it’s an apprenticeship or a 4-year degree. The power of the new Within Reach program is working with businesses to connect with parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles in the workplace, and highlight the importance of students “going on” after high school.
