There are many options for children and youth involvement in Dawson County. We have very active extra-curricular activities in Dawson County including FFA, 4-H, Career Tech organizations, many service organizations, athletics, band, music, drama and art. I encourage parents to assist their children in exploring their interests. This is a very important part of college and career readiness.
Dawson County School System is committed to providing an efficient way for new families to join our school community. Families moving to Dawson County can complete all registration paperwork at our centralized registration location, which is located at the Dawson County Schools Technology Center, or online. The goal is to have a streamlined process that ensures a positive experience for new families.
You may have noticed some construction work around the district. On August 5, 2016, the district opened the Dawson County Performing Arts Center on the campus of Dawson County High. The new facility includes a 1,000-seat auditorium, as well as, classrooms for band, chorus, drama and art. It is a state of the art facility that will provide an opportunity for the arts programs to flourish in Dawson County. The previous fine arts area in the main building was renovated this past summer to add eight classrooms, a new clinic, and a counseling suite. Changes were also made to both middle school campuses in preparation for the new 6-12 re-alignment. Finally, a driveway around Robinson Elementary was added to help alleviate the congestion on Perimeter Road and Allen Street.
