Dustin Sandidge
Dustin Sandidge
Mr. Sandidge was appointed to the School Board in 2016. He now serves as the Board’s President which requires him to preside over meetings, sign contracts,and occasionally speak on behalf of the board when needed. He graduated from De Beque High School in 1999.
Mr. Sandidge credits his mother Tami for being a great influence in his life.
He feels it is “...important that everyone does their part and you should spend your time working on the things that matter most.” He, along with the rest of the School Board, are continuing to work on the District's three year strategic plan which they intend on completing by the end of the school year. He feels that woking on the School Board has been a great personal growth opportunity. He has come to appreciate alternative perspective which has required him to become a better listener. Mr. Sandidge is married and has four children they enjoy the outdoors, hunting, skiing, and spending time with friends and family.

J.J. Weis
J.J. was born and raised in Palisade Colorado where he played football and ran track. After high school he enlisted in the Army for 3 years and then attended Mesa State College where he earned a BBA with an emphasis in Computer Information Systems. His career started with MCI WORLDCOM as a Field Engineer then went on to work for
St. Mary's Hospital as a Systems Administrator. In 2010, he began working for Williams in Parachute, Colorado. For the past 10 years J.J. has continued working in the oilfield.
In 2018, J.J. moved his wife Leslie and his two youngest kids, Scottie and Ava to De Beque because of the smaller class sizes and new opportunities that De Beque School had to offer. Leslie is a teacher and coach at De Beque and graduated from
De Beque in 1998. His older two daughters Alexis and Jordyn remain in Grand Junction where Jordyn is finishing high school at GJHS and is on their track team. His oldest Alexis works for a retail clothing company. J.J. immediately fell in love with the area and wanted to contribute to the community. When the need arose for other school board members, he spoke to Dustin Sandidge about his desire to be a part of the board. He was appointed to the board as Vice President in November 2019. J.J. and his family enjoy camping in their RV, traveling, skiing, hunting, and watching the Dragons compete in sporting events.
While serving on the board he wants to listen to the community and learn the intricacies of being on a school board in order to be a positive contributor.

Wendy Chapman is a mother of four. One activity that she and her family enjoy is scuba diving. Mrs. Chapman has been on the School Board since 2016. She was elected for a four year term. Mrs. Chapman serves as the Secretary and Treasurer which means that she takes care of the money and the records. She enjoys being on the School Board because she helps better the school. Mrs. Chapman is also a substitute teacher at De Beque. She likes the flexibility of being a substitute teacher because she can have more time with her family and have time to do things she needs to do. Mrs. Chapman really enjoys being on the School Board and helping students.

Public Procedures
The Board’s meeting time is dedicated to its strategic mission and top-priority focus areas. • Your insights are needed and welcomed and the board encourages you to meet with the most appropriate person among the district’s many leaders. • “Public participation” is an opportunity to present brief comments or pose questions to the board for consideration or follow-up. Each person is asked to focus comments to five minutes. The boundaries are designed to help keep the meeting focused and in no way should limit conversations beyond the board meeting. • The “consent agenda” is based around “need for action” decisions which are highly routine or backed by prior information/discussion. • If you are interested in helping the district’s achievement effort, please talk with any member of the administrative team or call the district office at 970-283-5596. Opportunities abound. Your participation is highly desired
