Enrolling Your Child

Enrolling Your Child

Imagine being the cobbler who must make shoes for 1,000 boys and girls.
These shoes must fit, must help the children to walk better, and must appeal
to the children and their parents.

Sure, you could make a few kinds of shoes and hope they fit, even with the
knowledge that each child’s podiatry needs are different. “Force your feet into them,”
you could tell the children, knowing one style would be the easiest option for you,
but hardly would meet the needs of each child. Or, to satisfy the needs of your
children and parents, you could make dozens of styles and sizes. More work for you?
You bet it is. But every child will have shoes that fit.

The Dell Rapids School District IS that cobbler, with programs
and schools that meet the educational needs of every child.

We believe that:

  • All children can learn
  • The best education happens when parents, students and school staff work together toward common goals by commonly agreed-upon methods; and
  • Families are the decision-makers on where their children will attend school.
