Our District


School District 215’s  mission is to educate and prepare all learners to excel and become contributors in their communities by providing opportunities, skills and tools to communicate, solve problems, build bridges and lead.


Learn. Build. Lead

We seek to learn. We pursue excellence through hard work and life-long learning. We recognize that different perspectives increase our understanding. We embrace what is already working and seek for ways to improve.

 We seek to build.
We seek to build bridges of collaboration to promote understanding and hope. We build individuals and place students as the top priority in decision-making.

 We seek to lead.
We lead forward to improve our own lives, enrich the lives of others, and improve the organizations of which we belong.

If You Know You Know

The modern hashtag IYKYK (If you know, you know) is a way of saying that those who have certain information or background will understand the meaning of something better than someone with no background. In education, there are many ideas, concepts, policies, and procedures that may make sense to those with specific roles in the field, but these may be confusing or seem like utter nonsense to those outside. The purpose of this section is to provide a location for patrons to learn more about our schools and our district. As questions or concerns arise, the district will make an effort to respond using our new website and app. The responses will be posted using our News Feed, Life Feed, and/or Facebook. Copies of those posts will then be listed in this section to provide easy access to the archive for those who desire to learn more. If you have a specific question that you would like to have addressed, please contact the district office.
