Welcome to our district!

Pratt USD 382 is a 4A district that serves 1200 students.  We take great pride in the success of our academic, athletics, and arts programs, which we believe is the direct result of the care and attention teachers and staff members give to students.  Small class sizes at every level allow teachers the opportunity to know your child’s strengths and weaknesses and respond to their social and emotional needs. 

Teacher leaders and building administrators decided the most important areas for our district focus would be Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships.  In other words, we believe rigorous academic instruction delivered through the use of technology (relevance) and a responsive, caring, knowledgeable teacher (relationships) will yield the most success for your student.  All aspects of the district from curriculum to personnel to assessments are focused on using the four Rs to guide our decisions.

Please take time to browse our site and look at the various examples of rigor, relevance, and relationships.   Our Kansas state assessments scores are obviously a source of pride, but there’s more to our buildings than just a building report card.  Check out the Pride of South Central Kansas Band, the Forensics Facebook Page, the teacher pages, and our facilities.  I think you’ll come to understand why our students are proud to say, “Once a Greenback, Always A Greenback!”

The technology department has done a great job compiling the necessary information so you have it at your fingertips.  If you do encounter difficulty, please feel free to call any building.  We have friendly people who will answer your questions regarding our schools or our website.

Once again, welcome to USD 382!
