Superintendent Welcome

dennis fischerWelcome to Platte County School District #1! On behalf of the school board, administration, faculty, staff and students, I want to welcome you to our district and encourage you to learn more about the many programs and services we offer our students. We are very proud of the work we do here, and we think our job of educating children is one of the most important jobs in the world.

Our website is designed to provide in-depth information about our programs, curriculum and services. We hope it will give you a sense of our commitment to providing an excellent education for every student we serve. Like our individual learners, our district itself is growing and learning. We are always trying to get better and rely on you to partner with us on this journey.

Please come in and visit our schools, both virtually and in person. Education is a very personal experience. You can only gain a true understanding of how much we care about every child’s education by observing our staff and our students first-hand. Also, take some time to explore this website and get to know us more personally. On each of these pages you will find examples of our efforts to reach, teach and inspire each and every learner.

We welcome your comments, questions, and suggestions. Please feel free to contact me at

Thank you,

Dennis Fischer
