A Message From Superintendent Mark Raymond

  • Welcome to Charger Nation! 
    I am pleased to welcome you to our school district.

    Dassel-Cokato Schools is located in rural, central Minnesota.  Our school district includes students from both Dassel and Cokato as well as neighboring communities including Darwin, South Haven, and Howard Lake.  We pride ourselves on our small town, strong family values.  Each of our students is valued for their strengths and prepared for life beyond school as valuable members of our community.

    These students are served by a world-class group of educators that truly believe in our school’s mission of inspiring students to maximize their potential, promote lifelong learning and work to assist students in becoming successful members of our society and community.

    Our mission is supported through a broad range of offerings that puts students on the pathway to success.  We offer enrichment activities, acceleration opportunities, and career exploration through focused and applied curricula. Whether it's post-secondary education, a career in the trades or beyond, our goal is to prepare each student for their journey as a lifelong learner. 

    Our belief is students are most successful when supported by the entire community.  Every member of our community plays a vital role in the success of each student as we bring forward future generations of Chargers.  Graduation is not the final destination but rather a stop along the way.

    Educate. Innovate. Succeed.  Our vision is clear and all-encompassing.  Together we are strong, together we are Chargers. If you are looking for a district to maximize the potential of your student, I invite you to explore our website and then give us a call.  We would be happy to meet with you to explain the difference being a Charger will make for your student!  

    I look forward to working with you.  Please stop in and visit.
    Mark Raymond, Superintendent
