Daggett School District is a public school district in the U.S. state of Utah. The district provides education for students living in Daggett County. The Daggett School District is the smallest school district in Utah, with three schools and 220 students. Daggett District operates shelter Pre-K programs (for students age 3–5 who qualify for an IEP) at each elementary school.

Due to the remote and rural locale, about 15 percent of Daggett School District's enrollment is students living in adjacent Sweetwater County, Wyoming. Several students from Uinta County, Wyoming are enrolled.

Daggett School District hosts a remote site of Utah State University's Distance Education system, which provides concurrent (dual) enrollment for high school students as well as post-secondary courses for adults. Uintah Basin Area Technology College, a branch of the Utah College of Applied Technology, also offers limited courses at Manila High School.

Daggett School District, originally called Daggett County School District, was formed when Daggett County split from Uintah County, Utah in 1914. State law requires each county to have at least one school district.

The superintendent of Daggett School District is Dr. Bruce Northcott. Business manager is Luann Robinson. School board members include Pat Asbill (President), Christy Jones (Vice President), James Olsen, Marcia Barber and Rena Pallesen. Board members are elected for a term of four years, from precincts established by the county commission.
