Vision: The Swanton Local School District is THE district of choice with an academic environment where student achievement is top priority, community involvement is vital, all individuals are valued, and the school is a point of pride.

Mission: To provide a superior educational experience by working together with students, families and community.


Extended Day Schedule

As you are likely aware, the Swanton Local School District has had to close school due to inclement weather nine (9) times so far during the 2014-15 school year.  Under the State’s old rules, we would be required to make up four (4) of those missed days.  The State’s recent change to a minimum hours of attendance requirement gives us more flexibility in determining how and when to make up time.

On Wednesday, March 18, 2015 the Swanton Local School District Board of Education approved the plan below in order for the district to begin making up some of the lost instructional time due to our harsh winter in the most valuable way possible.  Instead of adding days on at the end of the school year, or by having students complete “blizzard bags,” we are simply adding 30 minutes of instructional time to each day of school for just 20 days.  The lost instructional time will be recovered as follows:

Beginning Monday, March 30, 2015 we will extend the school day by 30 minutes each day.

This means Crestwood and Park would both release students at 3:40 instead of 3:10, SMS students at 2:52 instead of 2:22, and SHS will conclude their days at 3:00 instead of 2:30.  

After April 29, 2015 the extended days will conclude, and we will revert back to our regular schedule of dismissal times as printed above.

Unless we were to fall below the State’s minimum hour requirements between now and the end of the school year, students will not be required to make up additional instructional time.

I am very grateful to work with the staff, students, and parents and guardians of the Swanton Local School District in a cooperative effort to make this plan work as well as possible.  If you have any questions regarding the implementation of this plan, please feel free to your respective school building principal's office.

Have a great weekend!

The formation of the Swanton Local School District Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame will serve to recognize and honor graduates and alumni, and at the same time show current students what can be accomplished following their time at Swanton High School.

Each year, the Hall of Fame committee will collect nominations and select up to three individuals for induction into the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. Nominations for the first Hall of Fame class are being accepted now.

Swanton Superintendent Jeff Schlade said that the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame is long overdue.

“There are so many past students of this great district who have gone on to accomplish tremendous success in their chosen career fields and who have demonstrated great citizenship and meritorious service throughout their lives,” he said. “What better role models could we put before our students in an assembly type fashion?”

Preliminary plans for the autumn induction include a luncheon, followed by an assembly at the high school. Recognition at halftime of a varsity football game is also planned.

“We are all so excited to see how the selection of the first class of inductees, the ceremony, and the assembly and recognition of their accomplishments unfolds over the next several months," said Schlade.”

Since the inaugural induction cannot take place without nominations, organizers are relying on Swanton alumni and community members for nominations to see this new tradition through. 

Public Library, as well as the Swanton Local School District Board of Education office. There is also a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/swantonalumnihalloffame) where more information will be available in the coming weeks.

The deadline for nominations is April 30.
