Parent Guide to ESSA State and Local Report Cards
North Dakota launched a new website last year designed to help communities across the state to access important information about K-12 districts and schools. Insights features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including:
• Test Scores
• Graduation Rates
• English Language Progress
• Student Attendance
Insights, or more commonly referred to as the “Dashboard,” is part of North Dakota’s accountability system. It was one of the next steps in a series of major shifts in public education that have raised the bar for student learning, transformed testing, and placed the focus on equity for all students.
As a team, we want to work together to continue to improve the educational programs at Central Cass Public School.

If you have questions about this information, please contact the school.

Storm Delays and Cancellations
Because we are mainly a rural school district we do not take closing school lightly but always try to keep the best interests of our students and staff in mind, working closely with the Cass County Sheriff's Office and other local schools to make our final decisions. As you know, in North Dakota, the conditions change not only by the hour but by the minute and we try to take that into consideration. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we make those difficult decisions to stay open or to close our school in the future.
PLEASE NOTE: When school is two hours late the building will also open two hours late. Students may not be in the building while there is no one available to supervise.
Registration is now open for our Regular Ed Pre-Kindergarten Program. It will remain open until full and will be offered by a first-come, first-serve basis. Classes will be limited to 12 students.
NOTE: Applications will be accepted for families who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch with a reduction in tuition. Please stop in the main office to pick up a Free and Reduced application and for more information!
Please call 701-347-5353, email or stop up at the school if you have any questions and see our website for more details and to register!
Gearing Up for Kindergarten
• Parent and Child Group Activities
• Separate Child Activities
