The Platte Canyon School District shares with parents the responsibility of educating our youth. This education includes preparing students for higher education, to successfully enter the world of work, to be responsible citizens and to be life-long learners. We believe that our District must offer comprehensive programs in safe schools with positive educational environments, set high expectations for learning and assure implementation of a wide-range of effective instructional strategies to address diverse learning needs and talents.
