About Rau Elementary School
Rau Elementary School is the only School located in the Rau Public School District. As such we are separate from the Sidney Public School District. We are a public school but do allow attendance of out of district students. Out-of-district students will be accepted into Rau on a case-by-case basis as approved by the Board of Trustees and Supervising Teacher. Every nonresident student who attends Rau must reapply for admission the succeeding school year by June 15th. Admission in one school year does not infer or guarantee admission in subsequent years. Out-of-district students who have transferred away from Rau and wish to transfer back must re-obtain approval from the Board of Trustees. At this time no tuition is being charged for out-of-district students.
As a small rural school we offer small class sizes that allow our teachers to provide students frequent one on one assistance. All teachers are able to get to know students from all grades giving our students a higher level of monitoring and support. Students have an opportunity to not only make friends in their class but across many grades Therefore, in most cases, if a student is advanced or held back this will not affect them socially.
