DASD Instructional Vision


Habits of Mind

Our team in currently going working on updating our Mindful Mustangs program. While we develop our recognition system, we are continually focusing on three Habits of Mind.

Keep an eye out for evidence of these habits being demonstrated at home. Identifying them you see them and situations when they could be applied will help your child understand their importance. We look forward to a continued partnership on this Habits of Mind journey.


Conference Sign-ups

We will be utilizing PTC Fast for all conference sin-ups. This gives you the ability to sign up for your conferences with a few simple clicks. If you have multiple children, you will be able to access each homeroom's schedule to reserve a time.

Please use the link below to access all conference schedules.

*If you have any issues securing a conference spot, please reach out to the teacher directly.

DASD Virtual Community Bulletin Board

Please use this link to access our virtual community bulletin board. Here you will find information about programs and events that may be of interest to your family. Programs that were previously advertised in the schools are now posted to the virtual bulletin board.


Annual Online Registration is OPEN!

The deadline for parents to complete the online registration verification is October 31.

As this is the first time we are using Infinite Campus for this process, we expect that you may receive a few questions. We have created the attached instructional guide that you can use or share with families as they contact you. Use the link below to access the guide.
