Teaching and learning. It is not just a slogan. It's what the women and men of St. Cloud Area School District 742 do.
A caring and committed staff delivers learning for a lifetime to a diverse population of students in nine St. Cloud area communities. District 742 is the largest school district in Central Minnesota, proudly sharing the gift of education with more than 10,500 students each school day.
Our licensed staff, 67 percent of whom have advanced degrees, teach a challenging curriculum using both the the latest technology and tried-and-true methods. Located 70 miles northwest of Minneapolis-St. Paul, we bring the world's ideas into every school room with a fiber-optic data, voice and video network that links 20 sites.
District 742 has 8 elementary schools, two junior highs (7-8), two high schools (9-12) and two alternative learning centers. The high schools offer an array of AP courses and other opportunities to prepare students for post-secondary education. Students are encouraged to choose from among approximately 15 athletic activities and more than 25 non-athletic activities.
Meeting the needs of all students is fundamental. In every school building Talent Development Coordinators and Academic Achievement Coordinators work with staff and students to enrich the curriculum and offer after-school activities such as Future Problem Solving and U.S. Academic Triathlon. Early Childhood Services provides preschool programming, Community Education serves district residents of all ages and Student Services delivers a full range of services to disabled students, from birth to age 21. Every school has a Student Assistance Team that responds to individual needs as they arise.
District 742 is committed to standards for graduation. In partnership with parents, post-secondary educational institutions and businesses, the district is shaping curriculum, instruction and assessment to help ensure that students are successful.
Residents show their support for St. Cloud Area School District 742 in many ways. They volunteer in classrooms and media centers and participate in PTAs and Site Councils. The Local Educational Activites Foundation, a non-profit fundraising group, provides supplementary financial support for non-athletic after-school activities. Recent approval of a $6 million referendum to fund technology and program improvement is yet another example of community support for public education.
Teaching and learning. It's why we became educators. Learning for a lifetime. It's our promise to you.
Greater St. Cloud is the fastest-growing metropolitan area in Minnesota and serves as the commercial hub for more than 190,000 people. Industry is dominated by printing, granite fabrication and lens manufacturing. The retail sector, which serves Central and West Central Minnesota, is highlighted by a 119-store shopping center. Minnesota's dairy belt is centered in Stearns and Benton counties, where milk flows from 240-acre farms to massive cheese plants. St. Cloud Hospital provides a complete range of services to a 12-county region. St. Cloud State University, with an enrollment of nearly 15,000 students, is the largest of five local colleges.
District 742 residents enjoy the best of three worlds: metropolitan services, small-town conveniences and rural resources. An hour southeast of St. Cloud is Minneapolis-St. Paul, which offers world-class cultural, medical, educational, sporting and shopping opportunities. Just outside St. Cloud there are eight small communities, each with something unique to offer--an historic church, a special restaurant, a renowned community festival. Between our communities lie fields, woods, lakes and marshes. Outdoor activities, including fishing, hunting, boating, swimming and skiing, begin in our backyard and extend north to the Canadian border.
