The Saydel Community School District has an excellent tradition of fostering positive relationships with students, parents and staff. Our daily focus is to meet the unique learning needs of each and every student. We are a district of approximately 1,300 students and provide a small school learning environment for our students. We keep our focus on three non-negotiable goals:
- Student Achievement
- Enhancing Culture, Image and Relationships
- Maximizing the Use of Resources
We are a TAP school and believe improving instruction and providing a viable and rigorous education for all students is paramount. TAP, The System for Teacher and Student Advancement is a rigorous professional development model that is implemented daily and weekly through class instruction and teacher leadership meetings. Our instructional model allows us to have two Master Teachers and five Mentor Teachers per building to support our career teachers. Saydel Community School District is an excellent 3A school district conveniently located in the north Des Moines Metro area.
Congratulations to the Saydel robotics team for qualifying for state
Justin Roepsch, Colton Signs, and Gabe Condon represented Saydel at the Central Iowa FTC state qualifier. 25 teams from Central Iowa attended the event at John Deere Financial Saydel came into the qualifier as a 16 seed and had their work cut out for themselves if they had any aspiration of advancing to the state meet. After 6 rounds of qualifying matches, Saydel had moved up to the 11th seed. Going into the semifinal matches, the top 4 teams are required to selected alliance members. 2nd seeded Team Waukee graciously requested Team Saydel to join in alliance due to our K.I.S.S (Keep It Simple Stupid) design. The alliance plowed through the competition and WON the event. Alliance winners receive an automatic bid to the state meet on in Coralville. The top 48 robots from around the state will face off for the 2015 title and the right to advance to the Super Regionals. This is where teams from the entire Midwest Compete.
