Mission and Vision

The Buchanan County R-IV School District will provide a quality education in a safe learning environment.

Students at Buchanan County R-IV will grow as individuals having confidence to find their own purpose and become successful members of society through problem solving and independent thinking. In order to achieve this vision, we are committed as educators, students, the school district, and the community to these values:

  • Provide a welcome setting where students feel safe, both emotionally and physically
  • Dedicate ourselves to applying best instructional practices
  • Encourage, challenge and empower students
  • Ensure that all students experience success
  • Model and promote positive character traits
  • Create an engaging, learning environment where successes are celebrated
  • Collaborate as teams to implement our vision

The 2014-15 Rushville Elementary Part-time Preschool has openings. Children must be 3 prior to August 1 of 2014. Students need not be residents of the district to attend. Full day tuition is $15 plus meals. Families qualifying under the federal lunch program guidelines will receive free/reduced lunch. The part-time preschool will operate full days on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursday, during the school year. For more information, contact Mrs. Dittemore at (816)688-7777.
