The Annual Report is a good overview of the district. Click here to read this year's report.

Board Approves Renovations

The Board approved renovations for Sandoz and Cather Elementary Schools. The projects are part of the work funded through the community's support of the 2020 bond.

Thank You to Our Community

Each year our staff and students contribute to two district wide fundraising campaigns - the Staff Campaign for the Millard Public Schools Foundation and the United Way Annual Campaign. The Board received reports on both last night. The Foundation received $72,220 this year. The United Way received $53,478. Thank you to our Millard families and staff for your tremendous support of our community!
