Dysart Unified School District, in the Phoenix metro area, is Arizona’s fastest-growing school district, having more than tripled in size since 2001. The district’s strategic plan focuses on raising the relevance and rigor of education in the district.

Insuring students are equipped with the skills necessary to meet the challenges and opportunities in a 21st century global society are at the heart of the plan. Dysart is dedicated to going beyond providing preschool through grade 12 students with just the educational basics.

To accomplish the strategic plan goals the district must work collaboratively with all stakeholders and actively involve parents and community members as partners.
