Dexter Community Schools takes great pride in working in collaboration with our families in the best interest of all students. In line with this commitment, Dexter Community Schools is hosting three community forums related to the proposed no-transport zone for busing. These forums will be held both in person and via zoom with times in the evening and during the day to accommodate family work schedules. Families only need to attend one of the forums. 

Communication is being sent, including details of the proposal, to the entire School District via email and on our app and website. In addition, families within the proposed no-transport zone will receive a mailing to their homes inviting them to the in-person or Zoom forums. Supplemental information can be found on our website: No-Transport Zone

October is National Principals Month

Earlier this month, we invited families and staff to share their compliments for principals in recognition of October being National Principals Month. People sent in so many kind and thoughtful compliments! We have collected them in a universal video celebrating all our principals.

Those compliments that named specific principals have also been compiled (with signatures included as indicated by submitters) and will be shared with the individual recipients today. Based on your compliments, the Dexter Community Schools district is lucky to have an outstanding slate of building leaders! 

Thank you for helping us celebrate them.

Homecoming in small-town America is a special event.  Our students were in full Dreadnaught apparel throughout the district, the parade went through town with the band playing, tonight is the annual homecoming game, and tomorrow is the dance.  Our students enjoy the festivities while parents watch and share in the moment and our entire community walks down memory lane of their high school days and the days when their children were in the parade.  It’s a great time every year.  Below are some information items: 

Cybersecurity Webinar for Parents and Community Members; Ed Foundations Rivalry Match; Free and Reduced Lunch Applications/Education Benefits; Post Graduation Planning Resources for Students and Families; Dread Strong signs.
