In Greeley-Evans School District 6, COVID-19 case numbers are higher by month this year than last year.

SuperintendentDeirdre Pilch says around 75% of the district’s teachers are fully vaccinated, and there are no current plans to mandate vaccines for staff or students. Pilch joined Colorado Edition for an update on COVID-19 in the district.

As the host of KUNC’s new program and podcast In the NoCo, I work closely with our producers and reporters to bring context and diverse perspectives to the important issues of the day. Northern Colorado is such a diverse and growing region, brimming with history, culture, music, education, civic engagement, and amazing outdoor recreation. I love finding the stories and voices that reflect what makes NoCo such an extraordinary place to live.
As a producer for Colorado Edition, I pitch segment ideas, pre-interview guests, craft scripts and cut audio. I also write tweets, build web posts and occasionally host.
