Fort Leavenworth School District (USD 207) is a public school district located in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

History[edit]

The Fort Leavenworth School District has been a part of the educational system of the State of Kansas since 1901. Geographically, it is composed entirely of Federal Property and includes Fort Leavenworth, The Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery, and the U.S. Penitentiary. The buildings, which belong to the school district, are located on land leased from the Federal Government. The district provides instruction for grades K-9. Senior high school students attend the Leavenworth High School, a part of Leavenworth Public Schools USD 453. The school improvement plans provide a blueprint of school-based initiatives, strategies, and bench marked standards. School site councils serve as a monitor of continued improvement. The district exit outcomes identify broad goals for all students and are used to gauge or benchmark student programs and program effectiveness.[2]

At the turn of the century the Fort Leavenworth Schools were designed Common School District #81. It is the only Kansas school district wholly within the boundaries of a military reserve, although funding for the Fort schools is the same as all other public schools in the State of Kansas. The school district was reorganized again in 1965 and became known as Unified School District #207. The district is operated and financed like all other Kansas public schools.[2]
