Welcome to Carbon School District!
It is our hope that this website will serve you in providing important information regarding our instructional programs, our improvement plans, our support programs, and our staff. We encourage you to browse the website and to give us feedback about the content and the structure.
Carbon School District is located in Carbon County, situated in the southeastern region of the state. We serve approximately 3300 students in five elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. We serve students across a radius that measures approximately 35 miles. Our buildings range in age from Helper Middle School, constructed in 1936, to Bruin Point Elementary, constructed in 2006. Capital improvements and upgrades are a major focus for our district.
Carbon School District has been fortunate to have participated in many grant opportunities, the largest of which have been federal reading grants. We participated in the Reading Excellence Award (REA) grant program from 2000-2004, in the Reading First program from 2005-2009, in a state Math Improvement Grant from 2006-2009, as well as in a couple of secondary math grants extending from 2006-2009. As a result of these grants, which provided the research base and the resources, we have been able to implement many research-based practices in reading, writing, and math. We have experienced some positive results in terms of student achievement as a result of these grants.
We invite parents to communicate with their school administration and give them feedback. It is important for us to work together to improve the learning environment for our students.
