College Place Public School District Guiding Principles

  • All students have positive, personalized relationships where they feel connected, valued and inspired to learn and contribute.
  • Responsive, learner-centered environments that engage and rigorously challenge each student.
  • Students are connected to their community through real-life learning experiences, mentorships and adult advocacy.
  • All students learn through relevant, project-based, and collaborative experiences.

Standards-based Learning
At CPPS, the term "standards-based learning" is defined as the system of learning through instruction, assessment, grading and the reporting of student outcomes of their demonstration, understanding or mastery of the knowledge and skills they are expected to learn as they matriculate through their education. 

College Place School District has adopted the Danielson Framework for Teaching as our instructional framework.

Local Levy & Bond Support
In February of 2014 the College Place voters approved a four-year replacement Maintenance and Operations levy. Levy approval secures local funding for essential district programs and staff.

In 2012, the College Place voters approved a $49 million bond to finance capital improvements to its education facilities. This proposition would authorize the District to construct a new PK-5 Davis Elementary School at the current campus; improve Meadow Brook Intermediate School and construct additions and improvements to John Sager Middle School to create a 6-12 grade campus; construct a bus garage. $38 million will come from residents and the rest will come from state funding.
