About our District
Welcome to Sweetwater County School District #1
Sweetwater County School District Number One has clearly articulated a mission of providing a quality education for all students. We have aligned this important work as part of a year-long process to develop our five-year District Strategic Plan. Through the active participation and communication to and from our stakeholders, District goals and priorities were developed focusing on strong academic success built upon partnerships in a safe and positive climate and culture.
As a District, we believe the Professional Learning Communities (PLC) framework implements best practices into the daily operations of schools. We strive for every school, every team, and every classroom to be surrounded by this collaborative approach of continuous improvement ever evolving over time. As a learning organization with approximately 5,500 students we know our students face a future where critical thinking, problem solving and creativity will increasingly play a critical role in determining success. As teachers, administrators and community members, it’s our responsibility to make sure they’re properly prepared for their future.
The District has two main goals aligned to our Strategic Plan. The first goal is to increase student achievement by 10% in reading, math, and science. Safety, our second goal, includes continuous training, open communication, and clear protocols. As a District, we recognize the importance of social and emotional health of our students and staff. Together, these goals align our focus on results with intent, the intent to improve student learning for all the students we serve.
Sweetwater County School District Number One is a place for students, staff, parents, and the community. We’re proud to have your support and collaboration. It is a place for all of us.
