2020 Teachers of the Year Finalist


Clarification of attendance guidelines for Traditional students, as directed by the Oklahoma State Department of Education: As the school year progresses, DISD has found that it is necessary to revisit attendance guidelines and share this important information with parents. Students who elected to attend school traditionally, with face-to-face instruction, are expected to be in school every possible day. While we are proud to be able to offer a distance learning option for students that must be absent from school, due to unavoidable circumstances, it is still necessary for parents to report a student’s absence to the school site. Moving forward, students will continue to have the opportunity to work via distance if proper documentation is provided and approved by the site administration, but will be automatically counted absent if the parent has not reported the reason for absence. If the absence is reported and approved by the site administration, and the student completes online requirements, then the student will be counted as present for the day. Known quarantined students who have been notified by DISD, do not need to be reported by the parent, during the quarantine period.

Absences that may be approved with documentation: doctors/dentist visits, funerals, family emergency, and court. Illness that is not documented must be approved by the site administration. 

Absences that will not be excused: Missed the bus, overslept, didn’t feel like coming, mental health day, and family vacations.

On Distance Learning Days (scheduled or due to quarantine), students  IN ALL GRADES must complete all assignment requirements, each day, no later than 9pm. Any incompletes will be counted as an absence.

There's No Better Place to Learn

For over 100 years, Durant Public Schools has served as the flagship of our community. With a proud history of outstanding achievement, winning both state and national honors in academics, music, and sporting events, Durant ISD is poised to carry on the tradition of excellence. Each of the seven DISD sites is committed to offering current curriculum and digital tools to provide an exceptional educational experience for every student. Students at all sites are excelling under the Oklahoma state testing program. Within the Oklahoma Academic Performance rating system, students in grades 3 thru 8 scored an average of 180 points higher than the state average last year. Durant High School boasts academic accomplishment with thirteen National Merit Scholars in the last fifteen years and nearly 60% of all graduates pursuing higher education. Behind the success of DISD, is the commitment of our award-winning faculty. With over 71% of the faculty holding advanced degrees, teachers demonstrate that high expectations are not just something they teach, but something they live.

Community involvement has been the key to success for Durant Public Schools. Durant’s booming economy has created over 5000 new jobs in the past 10 years making employment growth in Bryan County the highest in the state. With new employment opportunities, come new families and in turn new students for Durant Schools. This recent economic expansion has led Durant Schools to its highest enrollment ever with a population exceeding thirty six hundred students. Durant citizens vote to support school bond issues on a regular basis, which ensures that students are provided with a safe and educationally sound learning environment. Parents, faculty, business members, and volunteers all play active roles in Durant ISD schools.

Whether you search all across the country or just across the state, you will find an undeniable truth at the core of the citizens of Durant. When it comes to education there’s no better place to learn!
