Many believe that Rau Elementary School is a private school. This is incorrect.
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.
If you are interested in your out-of-district student attending Rau Elementary School in the 2022-2023 school year, please call the office to obtain the proper application packet.
