Welcome to the Dell Rapids Public School District website. We are looking forward to the 2018-2019 school year and hope that you and your family are also excited. I am honored to be the superintendent of a district that is fully committed to finding success for each student. Our district has a North Star belief that drives all decisions. Throughout the district you will see the words, “empowering each other to excel”. How each student excels may look different, but this unwavering notion is the driving force behind our daily intentions.
Many of you have noticed our transition to a new web site. Although I’m excited by the communication improvements this site will create, a change such as this will no doubt be accompanied by a few temporary issues. I ask for your patience and cooperation as we ensure the site is designed to provide you with current and useful information. Implementation will take place over the next few months, therefore your feedback will be beneficial to us.
If you are new to the area or simply interested in learning more about our District, please feel free to call me personally to talk or to arrange a visit. I believe you’ll find that DRPS provides a high quality education while also ensuring students have opportunities to grow through many curricular and extracurricular activities.
As always, thank you for allowing me to serve as your district superintendent. I am committed to working with you to make the upcoming school year a success.
Dr. Summer Schultz
