Welcome to the Banks School District. As superintendent of the Banks School District I am very pleased to be serving students, staff, parents/guardians and the community patrons of the Banks School District. Our District serves approximately 1,150 students in grades K-12, spread over 450 square miles within our District’s attendance boundaries. We are projecting approximately 450 Elementary School students in Grades K-5, 300 Middle School students and 355 High School students. We have a five member Board of Directors dedicated to developing and maintaining school policy in the best interest of students and their learning within a safe and secure learning environment.

Thanks to the many community members and Board of Directors who were part of our facilities planning committee’s efforts since 2006, a construction bond for our school district passed in May of 2012, which has resulted in the District building a new Middle School, adding seismic and HVAC work at the High School and Grandstand, an emergency access road at the Elementary School, parking lot repairs, a new restroom and plaza at the High School Grandstand and numerous maintenance projects. The District is proud of the amount of work purchased with the bond proceeds and ending up with high quality work and within budget.

Come and join us! Our District is focused on providing high quality learning experiences for all students. I am proud of our high quality teaching staff, support staff and administrators. Our employees are committed to assuring success for all students and are willing to go the extra mile to get this done. We boast one of the highest graduation rates in the state and are striving to have our students graduate from high school being college, career and work ready. We are also blessed with a community and parent base that fully supports our efforts. Like all school districts in the state, funding from the state does not allow us to do all that we would like to do for our students and their learning. However, we will make no excuses. We may not be able to do everything we want to do. However, we will thoughtfully prioritize and define what we can do, and do it extraordinarily well. This will make our school district a great place for kids.

On behalf of our employees and Board of Directors, thank you for allowing us to educate and care for your children. It is important to me to receive your feedback. I fully understand that many of you are working during our regular school hours and unable to call. Therefore, please feel free to contact me via email (bobh@banks.k12.or.us) or call me at home (920-242-7172).
