Superintendent's Message


Welcome to Fort Leavenworth School District, USD 207. As Superintendent of Schools, I have the distinct pleasure and take great pride in leading this school district in our pursuit of excellence in education for our students.

The Fort Leavenworth School District is unique, not only in the State of Kansas but also in the country. What makes this district unique is that we are a State of Kansas Public School District entirely on Federal Property. Though we are on Federal Property, we are not part of the Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DoDDS) system. We adhere to all requirements and regulations from the Kansas Department of Education, KSDE.

By Kansas Statute, our district serves students in grades Preschool through Ninth Grade. Our student population consists of over 90% dependents of active duty military soldiers. As a result, we experience student mobility and transitions of nearly 50% each year. We continually welcome new students and families each year, as we wish those departing Fort Leavenworth many successes in their next assignments.

Our annual intent is to maximize the time we have with our students, whether they are here with us for one year or if they have been here through all grades. We strive to provide all students experiences that are positive and meaningful in their future academic and career-ready pursuits. We look forward to challenging their critical thinking and problem solving while fostering creativity through learning. We look forward to introducing our students to a variety of academic resources to include a T.E.A.M.S. (Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math, Science) focus at each school. I am confident our students will be engaged and excited about learning as we focus on their individual academic growth. 

As a strong supporter of the Fort Leavenworth Community, we look forward to the partnerships we have with our students, parents, and community leaders in this joint pursuit of a tradition of excellence in education. Please visit our website often, as well as communicate with the schools and District Office for all the exciting activities we have throughout the year.
