What's our mission?
Through their efforts, the staff of C.U.S.D. #3 is responsible to provide for the academic and social development of students in a collaborative environment between school, parents, and community.
With the assistance of the Prophetstown-Lyndon-Tampico Education Foundation, local organizations and grants, the district is able to provide access to technology through computer centers in each building, as well as computers in each classroom. Internet access is available using wireless technology.
