  • 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.
  • Mission
    The fundamental purpose of D.C.S.D. is to assure that all students achieve at high academic levels. This must be embedded into the day-to-day practice throughout the entire District.

  • Vision
    The vision of D.C.S.D. is for professional learning communities to develop a guaranteed and viable curriculum that is both commonly paced and commonly assessed in which student mastery of essential standards is measured by frequent common formative assessments in order to intervene and extend student learning.

Professional Learning Opportunity: Standards Implementation Institute

1 day ago

Strongly Encourage

The Utah State Board of Education has prepared a really good professional development opportunity for teachers during the month of June. We strongly encourage you to consider taking advantage of this opportunity

In fact, we have been able to secure the funding to pay up to $105 of your registration fee for you. (Most courses are 1 or 2 day courses that cost $50 per day). You may attend more courses if you wish, but we would only be able to pay for $105 of your registration.

There are various sites around the state that you are welcome to register for. One of those sites is Uintah High School in Vernal from June 8-11.
The attached catalogue is much more informative and will most likely answer most of the questions you have.

When you go to register, you will need to go to MIDAS - the state's online registration system. This is how you get into it:
           - Go to this website: 
          - Log in (your username is your email address)
          - Click on "Duchesne District"
          - Click on "Course Registration"
          - In the "Search by MIDAS course number" box, type the MIDAS number for your course and click              Filter
          - Click the green button that says "Register"
          - Follow the steps to check out and complete your registration.
For payment, it will require a Visa or Mastercard. Please use your own personal card, and then fill in the reimbursement voucher that is attached below. Return this voucher to Terri Killian at the district office or email it to her.

Hopefully this will work out well for you and you will gain additional tools for your teaching tool box.
