Welcome To East Sac County Community School District

The East Sac County Community School District officially came into being on July 1, 2011, a consolidation of Sac and Wall Lake View Auburn Community School Districts. We are a PK-12 district of approximately 950 students, with elementary schools (PK-4) in Sac City and Wall Lake, Middle School (5-8) in Sac City, and High School (9-12) in Lake View.

Virtually all school districts have a mission statement; at East Sac County we genuinely attempt to use our mission to drive our actions: East Sac County Schools empower all students to become productive, responsible citizens of an ever-changing global society.
We live this mission by focusing decisions and planning on what appears to be two very simple, straightforward questions: 1) Is this in the best interest of our students? 2) Will this help our students learn and grow? These two questions keep us focused on what is truly important about and in schools – students.

Whether you are a current or former student or parent, district patron, or someone investigating a place to raise your family, know that East Sac County Schools welcomes you.

Mission Statement:

East Sac County Schools empower all students to become productive, responsible citizens of an ever-changing global society.


Vision Statement:

The vision of East Sac County Schools is to be a community of teaching and learning that works as a team to create a caring environment that nurtures academic excellence. We will develop 21st Century Skills needed to succeed in and beyond the classroom by:
  • Building relationships with students, parents, staff, and community in a safe, caring environment.
  • Improving and utilizing effective communication skills.
  • Teaching students to access and analyze information through investigation.
  • Engaging student's curiosity and imagination.
  • Developing confidence to take action.
  • Instilling a strong work ethic, accountability, adaptability, tolerance, responsibility, and respect.
Through this shared vision, students will take ownership of their future.
