NOVEMBER NEW PARTNERS:
HIGH DESERT EDUCATION SERVICE DISTRICT
The High Desert Education Service District (HDESD) is a regional support system that links school districts in Central Oregon to state and national education resources. Their programs help districts minimize duplication of services, preserve their local budgets and receive special programs that might otherwise be unavailable to them. Services range from business, legal and administrative support to school improvement efforts and special education programs. HDESD works together to engage students to succeed and improve student outcomes with excellence, equity and efficiency.
CROOK COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT
Crook County School District (CCSD) is located in Central Oregon and is served by the High Desert Educational Service District. The District serves the Prineville, Powell Butte, Paulina and Post communities. It currently has an enrollment of approximately 2,923 students. The District consists of one high school, one middle school, two in-town elementary schools, two rural schools that serve students K-8 in Paulina and in Brothers, one alternative high school, CCSD Schools Online Option and other alternative programs. The District sponsors a “place-based” charter school that serves students K-8. “Place-based” means that a focus of cultural and ecological education is integrated into its curriculum. This charter has been operating since the 2010-2011 school year, and current enrollment is 186 students. Crook County High School offers a variety of dual-enrollment and AP courses to provide students the opportunity to earn college credit while still enrolled in high school. The District also offers professional technical programs, fine arts and foreign language.
BURTON SCHOOL DISTRICT
Burton School District (BSD) is located in the central California city of Porterville and prepares over 4,800 students across six elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school to be college and world ready. Of those schools, four are charter schools that offer IB programs for primary and middle school students. The district’s mission is to inspire students to have a voice in their learning and be engaged, curious, collaborative and self-confident learners. Burton commits to hiring, training and continuously developing faculty and staff to support student learning. The District is devoted to professional learning by providing ongoing opportunities to support innovators who facilitate creative and curious learners.
ADAMS COUNTY GOVERNMENT
Adams County Government encompasses 20 municipalities in central Wisconsin with a census of more than 20,000 residents. The county was created in 1848 and organized in 1853. Sources differ as to whether its name is in honor of the second President of the United States, John Adams, or his son, the sixth President, John Quincy Adams. Either way, Adams County is deeply rooted in history dating back to the early 1800s when the founders of Adams County (English Settlers) migrated from Upstate New York, followed by German settlers. The 1900s brought the North Western Railroad to the City of Adams, which was the terminal located halfway between Chicago and the Twin cities. Adams County is diligent in their commitment to continuous improvement in education, healthcare and economic development.
