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!

Go Bison!

~ Crista Anderson, Principal

WHEREAS, the trustees of Dixon School District #9, Sanders County, Montana, have made a determination that as a result of the unanticipated increased enrollment, the district’s budget for the General fund does not provide sufficient financing to properly maintain and support the District for the entire current school fiscal year 2019-2020; and

WHEREAS, the trustees have determined that an amendment to the Dixon Elementary General fund budget in the amount of $24,003.59 is necessary under the provision of Section 20-9-161, subsection 1, MCA; the district’s budget for the general fund does not provide sufficient financing to properly maintain and support the district for the entire current school fiscal year.

WHEREAS, the anticipated source of financing the budget amendment expenditures shall be the additional Direct State Aid.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Trustees of Dixon School District #9, Sanders County, Montana, will meet at 6 p.m. at the Dixon School on February 3, 2019 for the purpose of considering and adopting the budget amendment.
