Welcome to the Standard School District website.
Standard School District
X-Factor is a free after school program provided by Standard District through an After School Education and Safety Grant for students in first through eighth grade. This program is offered at Highland, Wingland, Standard Elementary, and Standard Middle School for 1st through 8th graders.
To register for the 2016-17 school year you must attend the next parent orientation, scheduled for November 3, 2016. There will not be another orientation until after the first of the year.
In order for your child to attend and/or be placed on a waiting list for the sites that are already full, the Parent Orientation is mandatory. The next Parent Orientation is:
November 3- Parent Orientation, 6:00 PM at the Standard Elementary Cafeteria (corner of N. Chester and Minner)

Currently all of our programs are full and waiting list applicants are being considered as openings occur. We have many wonderful things going on at all campuses in the afternoons. We have a variety of clubs at each campus which may include: drama, dance, chess, guitar, fencing, science, art, bike/scooter, and many more.

The X-Factor programs are going strong as we enter the fall months. Make sure you touch base with the site supervisors for the time change for walkers upon Daylight Savings weekend. There have been a lot of good things going on, including Western Day at Highland Elementary, Staff dress up for club announcements at Wingland Elementary, a new drama club at Standard Middle School, and Girls Scouts and Battle of the Books starting at Standard Elementary. Each site has great activities every day, besides the homework tutoring and help. Standard Elementary recently reached (and actually exceeded) their enrollment goal of 100 students. Students and parents alike are anxious to get into this amazing program!
