It is our pleasure to welcome you to Dixon Elementary School ~ home of the Bison! Our entire staff is committed to academic excellence, as well as the social enrichment and emotional support of our students. Our daily goal is to establish a strong personal and academic foundation rooted in the Bison Be's –
and Be SAFE
Our Vision is to provide a quality education for all students. Our goal is to provide the necessary academic, behavioral, and creative thinking skills that will allow all students to be successful through their school career and life.
We promote teaching that challenges students to reach beyond merely knowing the course material. We believe students must be able to think critically, analyze information, respond effectively, apply their learning in real life situations, view the world as global citizens and use varied technologies to create, communicate and collaborate.
As a true community school, we take pride in the many opportunities we offer our students. Please visit our website often to stay abreast of all that goes on at Dixon Elementary.
Thanks for visiting, and I look forward to seeing you at Dixon!
The US Department of Education required the Montana Office of Public Instruction to establish a process for district plans consistent with the ARP ESSER requirement for the use of ARP ESSER funds and to ensure plans are made available to the public prior to August 24, 2021.
The plan must include how districts will:
- Use funds to implement prevention and mitigation strategies;
- Use funds totaling not less than 20% to address lost instructional time;
- Spend its remaining 80% of ARP ESSER funds;
- Respond to needs of student populations disproportionally affected by the pandemic; and
- Meaningfully engage with and consult stakeholders in crafting their plans.
As with the Dixon School Safe Return to In-Person School and Continuity of Learning Plan, this plan provides another way for state and federal agencies to ensure responsible use of funding as we collaborate to meet district, goals of keeping student, staff, and community health and well-being a priority.

ARP ESSER PLAN FEEDBACK AND QUESTIONS
Section 2001(i)(1) of the ARP Act requires each district to develop and make publicly available on their website a plan for the Safe Return to School and Continuity of Services Plan. We are currently seeking public comment on the Dixon School Safe Return Plan as we continue to draft our next steps.
Please take some time to review our plan and provide feedback.
