The district maintains Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) accreditation and was acknowledged with Distinction in Performance by DESE in 2005. All of the facilities are now equipped with ground source heating and cooling.
The district is fortunate to have very active Parent-Teacher Groups (PTA, PTO, and PTSA). To get involved in your child’s education, contact the school and they can provide you with contact information.
Effective with the April 2007 election, the Sedalia community illustrated their continued support of the Sedalia School District by voting to increase taxes by 55 cents. This increase enabled the district to add six classrooms and more restroom facilities to the existing Parkview and Skyline elementary schools.
A new high school has been added to the district. This new facility houses 10th to 12th grade students and features the state-of-the-art Heckart Performing Arts Center. The elementary schools now house kindergarten through fourth grade. The middle school has become a 5th- and 6th-grade learning center and will eventually welcome the Pettis County Early Childhood Cooperative. The existing Smith-Cotton High School has become a junior high facility for 7th to 9th grade students.For more information on Sedalia School District 200, contact the central office at (660) 829-6450, or visit www.sedalia200.com.
Early Childhood Programs have been offered at the Pettis County Early Childhood Cooperative (otherwise known as The CO-OP) since 1991. The school is located at 601 E. 15th. This program serves the Sedalia 200, Green Ridge R-VIII, LaMonte R-IV, Pettis County R-V, Smithton R-VI, and Pettis County R-XII school districts, and is administered by the Sedalia School District. The CO-OP, under the umbrella of the Pettis County Early Childhood Cooperative, provides multiple services. Parents As Teachers (PAT) offers home visits and monthly activities that enable parents to unravel the mysteries of parenthood. Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) is for three- and four-year-old children with disabilities. And finally, the school offers a Title I Preschool program for students in the Sedalia School District who have developmental delays. The Title One Preschool is blended with the ECSE program and has limited openings. For more information, call (660) 827-8955.
The five elementary schools (grades K-4) feature a horizontally-aligned literacy model program, a highly successful mentoring partnership with local churches, a supplemental and extended after-school care through the Boys & Girls Club of Sedalia, and two of the schools offer before-school care through the Boys & Girls Club. For more information regarding the before-and after-school programs, you may contact the Boys & Girls Club at (660)826-8331 or the school your child attends.
