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 to Advanced Placement classes, there are countless academic programs where children can learn and thrive. Our support programs such as Title I Reading, Special Education, or English as a Second Language are well-established and can help at-risk students to successfully access the instruction that is available. And 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.

This year in particular, we have needed to carefully consider how best to educate the whole child. When the Governor closed schools in March, our staff members worked tirelessly to address both the academic and social/emotional needs of all children in a variety of creative new ways. 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. Everyone also worked hard to provide children with a number of necessary supports that were essential to their success. As a district, we will continue to adapt to changing situations throughout this COVID-19 crisis so that our mission of inspiring and supporting every child, every chance, every day can continue, regardless of the context in which we are providing education to the children in our community.

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.
