Goals of Pasco School District
The district's goals are to form an environment where there is cooperation among the staff, students, parents, and the community in order to produce the technological, financial, and physical aspects needed for the advancement of the students academically.
The Pasco School District uses “PowerSchool”. It is a student information database to find out information about the students. The teachers and staff know their student by name not just merely by their identification numbers. They know what their students’ interests are and what they do best.#idx-price-bar#
National Network of Partnership Schools
In 2005, the school district joined the National Network of Partnership Schools. This program asks schools, districts, states, and organizations to join and, with the use of approaches which are research-based, be able to come up with programs and activities where family and community is involved to improve learning and development of the students in school.
Public schools in Pasco serve the students by teaching them to lead productive lives not only through academics but also through the arts, athletics, and other activities to develop them to their fullest potential.
