The School District of Durand is a preK-12 public school district located in the scenic hills and valleys along the southern end of the Chippewa River. Students in the district attend school at three different sites: Caddie Woodlawn Early Learning Center, Arkansaw Elementary School, and Durand Jr./Sr. High School. The Early Learning Center features our youngest learners including B-3, Head Start, Early Childhood, 4-year old Kindergarten and Kindergarten. The elementary school houses our students in grades 1 – 6, with 7th – 12th graders at the Junior – Senior High School. All three sites offer a comprehensive continuum of special education programming and services. The district also provides services from two school psychologists and a part-time social worker. In addition, the district jointly supports an alternative school for students who are severely at-risk of dropping out of public education.
In 1992, the Durand School District consolidated with the Arkansaw School District and the facilities of that district are used as our elementary school.
Being a predominantly rural school, approximately 75% of the students are bused to the different attendance centers on 24 different bus routes. The approximately 1,100 children enrolled in our district are served by 84 professional educators, 61 support staff, and 4 administrators. The district is directed by a nine-member, elected Board of Education.
