About Us

At Sedalia Elementary, students and staff enter each day with a mindset of becoming better learners and educators.  We accomplish this through shared responsibility in learning that starts with clarity.  Teachers use clearly developed learning targets and success criteria that helps transfer the responsibility of learning to students.  Students eagerly take on this responsibility because they are aware of where they are with relation to the intended targets and can access resources to reach the targets.  In addition to the core content offered in all DCSD elementary schools, students at Sedalia also use the rural setting to extend their learning outside.  We have large school gardens, more than twenty chickens, and one of the most comprehensive recycling programs in the state.  We are proud to be a Green Ribbon Award willing school which is awarded to schools with exemplary sustainability practices.  Sedalia is a unique school and students receive a unique education to prepare them for the world today and the world tomorrow.
