Did you know? Recent legislature changed the entry age. For the 2015-2016 school year, a child who resides in a public school district may enroll if the child is at least 5 years of age on September 1st, 2015. If the child is NOT eligible for kindergarten enrollment per the guidelines, but will be five years old by December 1st, the child’s parent or legal guardian can sign a waiver to enroll their student in school. CALL (989) 681-3535 to register your child today!

We identified our strengths and weaknesses as a district. In an effort to address the growth edges, several items of action were listed. The intent is not to do all of them right now, but implement a few of them each year. We are doing many things right already, but there are some areas of improvement that we can begin right away. We will use this information to guide the district forward and put our District Improvement Plan together. DSIT Happenings - March
Together we Can, Together we Do!
Our theme for parents, staff, and students of St. Louis Public Schools for the 2014-15 school year is: “Together we Can, Together we Do!” It takes all of us working together to support our children and continue to have such a fine upstanding community.
We will be celebrating the successes and building upon them to be a GREAT district for our community! We can raise student achievement; we can engage parents in the learning process; and, we can build community partnerships that support student achievement that last a lifetime.
“Together we Can, Together we Do!”
