Del Norte Unified School District

"Equipping Students for Success"


  • Remote Learning Survey 6-3-2020

    Parents and Guardians,

    Our District is partnering with BrightBytes to learn more about how our community is responding to teaching and learning remotely. We want to hear how you and your child(ren) are adjusting during this unprecedented time and learn how the district can better support you.

    We are asking students in grades 3-12, as well as all teachers, principals, and parents / guardians to provide input on this survey. The survey will take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete. If you have children in more than one school, please complete the survey for each child.

    Your participation is crucial in providing a comprehensive understanding of how we can improve support for you and your student(s) during this time.

    We will be collecting survey responses from June 3 - June 10. Below is the URL to access our district survey landing page. Once there, select the Parent survey and then select your school from the drop-down menu.

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."
