Del Norte Unified School District

"Equipping Students for Success"


  • Good afternoon,

    We are making some changes to our video conferencing tool, Zoom, in order to provide an even higher level of security for our students and staff. Effective tomorrow, Friday, September 18, all students will need to authenticate to their DNCOE Zoom account using the Single Sign-On (SSO) option with their District-provided email address. When your students attempt to join their Zoom classes they may now be prompted to log in - make sure they type in "DNCOE" for the domain, then they'll be directed to authenticate using their existing student email address and password.

    As always our IT Department is here to help. Should you experience any issues please call our Family Support Hotline at 707-464-7005. We are still experiencing very high call volumes, so if we don't answer immediately please leave a clear message on how to reach you, and we'll get back to you just as soon as possible. That support number again, 707-464-7005.

    Thank you so much for your support and understanding as we continue to ensure the best and most secure experience is being provided for your students.

  • Superintendent's Message to the Community 9-14-2020

    • DNUSD wants to thank Frontier Communications and the California Emerging Technology Fund for providing 200 devices to our 6th-grade students at Crescent Elk.
    • DNUSD is planning on providing the community with as accurate of a timeline as we possibly can for students returning to school in phases 2 & 3. These timelines heavily depend on materials and supplies arriving for safety and sanitation. We will be issuing more communications as soon as possible regarding this issue.

Welcome to the Del Norte County Unified School District. Our schools have been the starting point for thousands of local children for over 100 years. We are proud to provide focused instruction in the fundamentals as well as creative arts and preparation for careers. Success starts here in Del Norte County.

Our teachers participate in continuous evaluation of their students’ achievement. We provide state of the art training to help them acquire and develop new strategies to ensure that all children succeed.

We are diligent to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children where they can learn the academic and social skills necessary to get them off to a good start. Our schools are distinguished from others by their culture of high expectations and collaboration.

We want to give you the opportunity to see the great work going on in our classrooms and on our playgrounds each day, so you can see why we say, “Success Starts Here."
