In a recent US News and World Report ranking of Minnesota's 772 high schools, Dassel-Cokato was rated at number 30. This is the second year in a row that DCHS is ranked in the top 30.
This very high placement was based on a comprehensive ranking methodology including educating all of its students and showing academic outcomes. More information about the report, as well as complete rankings, can be found on the US News and World Report website.
This year we are taking full-advantage of our Campus student system and added a feature that is able to contact all of our parents and staff in a very short period of time for important announcements from school. For late-starts, early-outs and cancellations Mr. Powers will use this system. Cell phone numbers, home phone numbers and other numbers for parents will be called with the notification . Mr. Powers will also contact radio and TV stations as he has done in the past. If you need to update your contact information, please contact the DCHS Office. (more)
The high school guidance staff and administration has held several help sessions this school year. You may view an archived video of the presentations online. You may also download or view the PowerPoint presentations shared at each. The sessions included information on college credit, financial aid, registration and the Plan test.
Minnesota Career Information System (MnCIS) and the new ACT Online Prep Course and Practice Tests are available to Dassel-Cokato students preparing to take the ACT.
The Online course allows students to take a pretest and then customizes lessons for them based on their pretest results. In addition to test content they also have some very good test strategies.
The other option students have is to take one of 3 practice tests in English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing. They can do this timed or untimed.
If students or parents have questions about this program, they should contact Mr. Tool in the HS guidance office.
The high school winner of the LEEA (Leadership in Education Award) is Mr. Dennis Abernathy. Congratulations!
Infinite Campus is used to maintain all our student and family information. An exciting component of this software is the Parent Portal, which will allow parents better access to their children's grades, lunch account balances, standardized test scores, attendance records, contact information, and immunization records.
