School Year 2019-2020 has been a busy year. Along with our fantastic students and faculty coming in every day to work hard towards each student's future, the district has several major projects this year.
- Special Education Services - There are some significant changes occurring within the special education services provided to our students. Interlocal 618 which serves 9 school districts will be changing to three cooperatives. Along with Burrton and Valley Center, Sedgwick will become a member of the Ark Valley Special Education Cooperative. Our goal is to maintain the current excellent services for our students. It is anticipated that Sedgwick's current special education staff will continue to provide services within our districts. The change from Interlocal 618 to the Ark Valley Cooperative will occur July 1, 2021.
- Facilities Upgrades - For the past year and a half, the steering committee, staff, community, and Board of Education have been discussing facility needs for the district. The last bond passed was in 1997 resulting in the main gymnasium, classrooms, fine arts facilities, and the multipurpose facilities. The last major upgrade was the five classrooms and safe room at the grade school. Please stay tuned for more information regarding this next step for Sedgwick Public Schools.
- Preschool - As the district continues to move forward with the Kansas State Department of Education's vision "Kansas Leads the World in Educational Success, prekindergarten readiness is a key factor. Most importantly, this program will provide opportunities for our students, families, and community. Mrs. Scott is working diligently to develops this program. If you have a preschool age child and are interested, please contact the grade school at 316-772-5783 Opt. 2.
As we take steps towards the future, we appreciate everyone's input and support in our efforts to continue to provide 21st century services to our students .
