Important News for
Drexel Parents, Students and Patrons!

During the next several months, we will be collaborating with stakeholders across our community to develop a strategic 5 year plan. Our hope is to unify the entire Drexel R-IV community in a common purpose centered on core beliefs. We believe that with careful planning and collective commitment we can be the best rural school district in Missouri and the top academic school in our conference. In order for us to accomplish this, we will need help in various forms from our Drexel family. The first critical item is to gather honest feedback about how we are performing from as many stakeholders as possible. Please take 5 or 10 minutes to complete this brief survey so we can have a solid starting point as we begin our strategic plan.
