Dr. Jerry Rasmussen

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new students, staff, and community members.  I am deeply honored to to serve as Superintendent of our district and consider it a privilege to serve our community.  As we enter the 24th year of existence as Dakota Valley, we are proud of the past achievements of our students and are eager to partner with our students, parents, and community as we strive for continued success by our students.  One of my goals is to continue to establish and build relationships with each of our students and families so as to not only develop strong students, but quality citizens.

As we prepare for the school year, I urge you to review the information contained within the Panther Pride.  Inside you will find many important dates and information on our schools and the various programs within our schools.  Our modern, state of the art facilities and technology provide many exciting opportunities for our students and staff. 

Each year, we welcome many new students to our district.  Dakota Valley is a welcoming community and many of our students and families have moved into our district from other schools.  I trust that you will find a caring staff who strives to appropriate challenge the growth of our students while appropriately providing support as needed.

The foundation of every effective school is the partnerships between the school, parents, and community.  We firmly believe that with your support, we will continue to see our students experience high levels of success and be prepared for their futures.  Not all students have the same hopes and dreams, thus they need a variety to paths to be career and / or career ready.  We continue to build a menu of options to provide opportunities for our students.  On behalf of our staff, School Board, and students, I sincerely thank you for your support of our schools and students.
