Welcome To Our District

Dayton public schools are the heart of Dayton, Oregon.  Dayton School District is located in western Oregon’s Mid-Willamette Valley, between McMinnville and Newberg, and serves approximately 1,000 students in a grade school, junior high, and high school.  The school district draws people into the community who want a strong educational system with a rural sense of caring and teamwork.

Superintendent News 

Dear Dayton Staff and Community,

Over the last two months serving as your Interim Superintendent, I have learned that Dayton School District and its community is truly a family - a family with values and traditions that are deeply rooted to place, and a family that looks ahead with enthusiasm.
With the passage of the Student Success Act (SSA) by the state legislature in Spring of 2019, we will be applying for significant additional funding from the state’s Student Investment Account in January/February. This could mean an additional $600,000 infusion for Dayton next school year, benefiting all our students and improving their educational experience.

The state has designated four key areas for the additional funding:
     1.  Increased instructional time
     2.  Student health and safety
     3.  Class size reduction
     4.  Well-rounded learning opportunities

With this exciting opportunity before us, we want to hear from you. Please take a moment to complete our brief survey linked below. This information will help guide us in setting priorities and using the additional monies within state guidelines.  The survey window will close November 1st.

Board News 

Dear Dayton Community,

The Dayton School District is continuing its search for a permanent Superintendent. You may remember an invitation I sent in October asking for your participation in an online survey. Thank you if you were able to fill it out. That information gave us what we needed to post a job advertisement. 

Now that our recruitment is live we're assembling an application screening committee 

This committee will be made up of staff and community members. It will provide feedback to the Board on applicants during the application and interview processes. We'd greatly appreciate your help. 

If you're interested in participating, please fill out the enclosed application. Take a careful look at the instructions, due date for the application, and dates the screening committee will meet. Attending these meetings is required. The Board will review applications at its December meeting and select three individuals to participate. We'll notify applicants of the selection after. 

Thank you for your help in this important recruitment.
