Mission Statement

The Mission of the DeWitt School District is to provide all students equal and equitable access to a safe and nurturing environment in which they can grow mentally, physically, socially, and technologically into capable and productive citizens. The district stands ready, willing, and able to accept this responsibility for all students in our care.


We, the members of the board of education and administration, are committed to the belief that the school exists for the primary purpose of providing educational opportunities for all the students who live within the confines of the DeWitt School District.

We are also deeply concerned with the development of a well-balanced curriculum that will adequately provide for the needs of all students.

We believe that preparation for college be emphasized but not to the exclusion of other programs which will prepare the non-college student for some type of vocational employment upon graduation from high school.

We believe also that it is the school's responsibility to provide a curriculum that will keep to a minimum the number of dropouts before graduation.

We also believe that the classroom instruction should have priority over all other programs connected with the school. It is also our belief that the basic fundamentals such as reading, writing, spelling, math, and speech and should be stressed from the first through the twelfth grades.
