  • No Tax Levy Increase Bond Issue on April 4 Ballot


    To address the growth in our community and an increasing number of students, Republic School District is proposing a no tax levy increase bond issue for $47 million on the April 4, 2023 election ballot. This proposal would fund a new school building for all 5th and 6th grade students in the district, which would be built on the district’s newly acquired land near Highway 60 and James River Freeway.


    The new 5th and 6th grade center is estimated to cost $42 million and to be completed in the fall of 2025. Other projects could also be completed as funds allow. Those projects could include expansions and upgrades that community members received a survey about earlier this year. 


    Regardless of the bond issue passing or failing, the tax levy will not change from its current rate of just over $4.12.


    To offer an additional opportunity for community members to learn about this proposal, Republic School District will offer a virtual event on March 30, 7:00-7:30 p.m. on YouTube Live (  


    For more information, go to There, you'll find answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the no tax levy increase bond issue and information about how to submit questions for the Virtual Community Event.

    New Central Office Opens for Operation


    Republic School District has opened its new Central Office. Previously on the back of Price Elementary, Central Office is now located at the newly renovated, former Early Childhood building at the corner of Main Street and Hwy 174. Human Resources, Federal Programs, Food Service and other district leadership are now all located within the new building at 636 N. Main St. A new space for Board of Education meetings is being built at that location as well. 


    The district's phone number will remain the same at 417-732-3605.


    The office area at Price Elementary will be remodeled into classrooms to create more space for students. During construction on the former and new Board of Education meeting rooms, Board of Education meetings will be held at Sweeny Elementary (720 N. Main St.).

    Jordan Valley Health School-Based Care

    At the Republic School District, we are grateful for our continued school-based health clinic partnership with Jordan Valley Health!


    Jordan Valley's mobile unit will continue well-child checks on the second Monday of every month throughout the school year on school campuses. See the graphic for additional dates.


    In addition, our school nurses can coordinate with Jordan Valley Health to set up a virtual visit during the school day with a Jordan Valley doctor or nurse practitioner for any student that is sick and needs to be seen by a practitioner for the following illnesses: strep throat, ear infection, sinus infection, rash, pink eye, stomach flu, bug bites, lice and congestion. The student will be able to return to class OR they will be given a diagnosis and will be ready to go home. If necessary, the provider will call in a prescription to the patient's pharmacy for them to pay for and pick-up.


    This partnership is made possible primarily by funds provided by Jordan Valley Health Centers. Beyond office space for the on-site community health worker, this program has no other financial obligations for the district. Parents will never receive a bill for care. If the patient has insurance, that insurance will receive the bill. If the patient does not have insurance, Jordan Valley Health Center covers the cost of the visit and patients only have to pay for prescriptions, when needed.


    This service will be optional, but available to all students. Registration forms will need to be completed before students can be seen. You can print a form and return it to school at We're excited and thankful for this opportunity to partner with Jordan Valley Health Center!


    Jordan Valley will conduct well-child checks on the second Monday of each month.

    New Start & Dismissal Times for Lyon & Sweeny

    To assist with the traffic flow issues at Highway 174 and Main, Lyon and Sweeny elementaries will have new start and dismissal times for the 2022-23 school year. This is a short-term solution until a more permanent, long-term solution can be implemented to physically adjust these car lines (which continues to be a discussion with the City and local landowners). Please follow the link to read an email that was sent to Lyon and Sweeny families, which includes all of the details:

  • District CSIP Approved

    CSIP LogoThroughout the last year district teammates and community volunteers devoted over 1200 hours to develop our newly approved district CSIP–Comprehensive School Improvement Plan! This “strategic plan” has been designed to serve as our “road map” for the next 4-6 years in meeting the needs of our students and employees. In addition, updated district mission and vision statements were created.


    As a reminder, this process is community driven! There were over 550 responses to surveys seeking feedback about the development of our mission, vision and the community priorities included within the CSIP. Over 100 representatives (including parents, community members, school board members, employees and students) were involved in the committees, or “goal teams,” who brought this work to life. THANK YOU to those who were involved! 


    There are three goal areas that will drive our work through the CSIP:

    • Academic success
    • Culture
    • Leadership


    For each of these three goals, performance objectives, strategies and measures have been developed that include ways to support and grow STUDENTS and EMPLOYEES! 

    Visit to dive into our new CSIP! This webpage has been designed to provide you with an overall snapshot of this work as it progresses, but also an opportunity to dive as deep into it as you’d like to learn more! We can’t wait to share more with you about our CSIP journey as the new school year begins in August!
