Welcome to Delta County School District’s Website. Delta County School District is committed to providing a quality education to all students. Our staff provides a caring and compassionate environment as well as a rigorous and challenging curriculum. Communication between parents, communities and school is very important as we involve all stakeholders in the education of our students. The Delta County School District website is designed to assist in informing people about our School District. The school calendar, District policies, vision, sports schedules and many other items can be found from this web site or each individual schools’ website.

It is an honor to serve the many communities in Delta County as the District Superintendent. The support and enthusiasm I witness each day is tremendous. We appreciate the Delta County School District students, staff and community for creating a positive learning environment. The District continues to strive for academic excellence and fiscal responsibility. Our schools are performing well through student growth and achievement. We look forward to meeting the needs of all learners, to ensure that every student reaches his or her full potential, and to prepare our graduates to have options in college and/or enter the workforce or the military.

The recognitions and achievements of our schools are many and are the result of Board and administrator leadership, teacher/staff and student dedication, community support and parent involvement.

The Delta County School District provides a safe and caring environment for all students and staff, meaningful opportunities and innovative educational programs that challenge all students so that they will continue learning as they enter the workforce, begin a career, attend college, or other postsecondary education opportunities of their choice.

DCSD Top Priorities

There are many important issues facing our society today. Top priorities for all of us are the physical safety, emotional well-being, and continued respect for each of our students, teachers, staff, and members of our community. This spring has been difficult for all of our communities, as our daily life has changed so dramatically from what we could have imagined just a few months ago. The pandemic has only further highlighted the importance of the work necessary to achieve equity in our schools. We will continue to work diligently so all students, staff, and families will be treated with the utmost respect and support. As we navigate these uncertain times, we must also acknowledge that social injustices may occur locally, even in our schools. As a School District, we condemn all types of discrimination and injustice, while promoting equitable opportunities, and keeping our schools safe. We do this in an effort to embody the District motto of Caring, Challenging, Learning . . . Every Student, Every Day!
