Welcome to the Cocalico School District!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn about our district. We have many exciting things to share with you. From preschool programs in every elementary building, to new electives at the middle school and Advanced Placement classes at the high school, there are countless academic programs where children can learn and thrive. Our support programs such as Title I Reading and Math Support, Special Education, or English as a Second Language can help at-risk students to successfully access the instruction that is available. In addition, our extra-curricular programs that include eSports, Quiz Bowl, the arts, and athletics all serve to enhance the educational experiences of our children and help them learn many skills they can apply later in life.

As you explore our website, you will see many other ways in which we address the needs of the “whole child.” Our mission, vision, and values all emphasize that priority, as does our Eagle P.A.C.T. We are constantly seeking to improve how we help all children to learn in an environment that feels safe to them, and we intentionally generate a variety of opportunities for them to communicate with others and work in teams so they can learn how to address problems and adapt to real world situations.

Last year, we needed to carefully consider how best to educate every child, given the circumstances of the pandemic. Teachers, counselors, and other professionals worked hard to think beyond the rote delivery of information and deliberately created experiences that would address children’s motivations to learn. In addition, our staff developed new ways of providing students with a variety of supports that were essential to student success. As we return to more of our usual approaches and programs this year, we will continue to adapt to changing situations so that our mission of inspiring and supporting “every child, every chance, every day” will continue.

Thank you again for your interest in Cocalico School District! Please contact me if you have any questions about any of our programs.
Warmest regards,

Ella H. Musser, Ed. D.
