About Us
Duchesne County School District is a small, rural school district located in scenic Eastern Utah. Duchesne County, gateway to the Uintah Basin, is home to about 5050 students in thirteen schools located in six rural communities. We have seven elementary schools, three high schools, one junior high school, one K-12 school, and one special school. We are able to provide quality educational programs and enjoy good relationships with Utah State University Branch Campus and Uintah Basin Applied Technology College. We also utilize a distance learning network to provide curriculum to our more isolated schools. An ongoing project of the district is to provide modern, safe, and efficient facilities in a pleasant and positive learning environment.

State Board Presentation
Leaders of Duchesne County School District were recently highlighted and invited to present information to the Utah State Board of Education. The following is an excerpt from the invitation:
“The State Board would like to do an Education Highlight on literacy. I am reaching out to ask if Duchesne would be willing to highlight the great efforts your district has made in improving literacy over the past year. Your district showed more than a 10% gain on the percentage of students making typical or better progress in the 2017-18 school year. This is one of the largest gains in the state.
Given my experience in your district, I expect that you will continue to see gains given the strategies your district is employing and would love to highlight your work with our Board so that they, and those who have the pleasure of listening in or attending, can learn from your experience.”
