 About Us
Unified School District 490, El Dorado Public Schools, serves students and families throughout 128 square miles in the city of El Dorado and the surrounding rural area of Butler County with a comprehensive educational program including vocal music, band, orchestra, fine arts, physical education, art, foreign language, and technology.

The district has been recognized for excellence in technology and takes pride in providing tools that support acquisition of 21st century skills.

Students attend one of three elementary schools, a middle school serving grades 6-8, and El Dorado High School, a 4A school serving students in grades 9-12. Forty pre-K students are served through a State Pre-Kindergarten Program grant. The district provides full day kindergarten. The high school has an alternative program as well as a virtual program for students who experience success in a non-traditional setting.

The Board of Education has adopted a Strategic Plan to support the district vision in the areas of Students, Culture, and Community. Goals were established to ensure the district is working toward improving in these three key areas. The goals established were Student Achievement, Staff Retention and Recruitment, School Climate, Communication, and Infrastructure. Copies of the District Strategic Plan are available at the District Office.
