  • Missouri Career and Technical Education Needs Your Input 
    Governor Mike Parson has indicated that preparing students for Missouri’s 21st century workforce is a top priority in the state. Opportunities abound in today’s economy for students who attain some type of specialized technical skill, an industry recognized credential or post-secondary training. All of these can be accomplished by attending Career and Technical Education Programs (CTE) around the state.

    The CTE Advisory Council, established in Section 178.550.1, RSMO, has developed a survey to gather feedback of how our current CTE programming is perceived by students, parents and guardians, business leaders, school counselors and other educators as school districts consider adding courses in CTE and encouraging more students to enroll in these programs.

    The short survey can be found at this link:

  • Thank You So Much To Our Voters
    Thank you so much to our voters. Over 59% approval for our bond issue.

    Our district has a very bright future and our students will benefit from the continued progress in DCR1.  The progress that has occurred over the last few years can now continue and we will be able to address our facility needs to give our students the best possible start on their futures. Many of the decision for next budget year have yet to be made, but Dr. Ryan is optimistic about continuing to improve our student achievement, our continued improvements in staff pay, and our continued facility improvements. Thank you voters of the Dallas County R-1 School District.

    The district will begin working with the architects on building plans, specifications and plan to bid Project DCTC late fall, 2019. Project DCTC is planned to open for students for the 2021-22 school year.
