Welcome to Derby Middle School

ShipleyOur website will give you an overview of resources and opportunities available for students and parents. This is an exciting time to be a Bulldog as our campus is finishing up a $12 million renovation and expansion project. While there certainly were growing pains, we are encouraged by the positive impact these projects have had on the learning environment for our students. If there is any way we can help improve your experience at Derby Middle School, please give us a call at (316) 788-8580.

attentionDue to a programming issue in Skyward's Family Access, the Food Service tab will be unavailable beginning January 1. If your student's account balance falls below $5, you will still be notified via Skylert if you are signed up for Food Service messages. You are also able to log into e~Funds to see the current balance for your student's meal account. Click HERE if you need more information on e~Funds. Skyward is working to fix this programming issue and we will notify you if/when it is resolved.

Process for SuccessSince March of 2016, the Process for Success (PFS) committee began the task of reviewing the school district's current facilities, looking at enrollment projections and assessing the best way to meet the current and long range facility needs of all students in an efficient and effective manner. The PFS committee is made up of community members, parents and staff who have invested significant time and effort reviewing information. After much thought and consideration, the committee developed a facilities master plan they feel addresses and meets the educational expectations of our community and presented this at the Board of Education (BOE) meeting on December 12. BOE members gave direction at that meeting to begin gathering community input on the committee's facilities master plan. 
Derby Public Schools looks forward to hearing ideas and putting together a facilities master plan that addresses and meets the educational expectations of our community. Please consider attending one of the following upcoming community meetings to learn more:
• 6:30PM on Tuesday, January 24, at Cooper Elementary (4625 Juniper, Wichita)
• 6:30PM on Thursday, January 26, at Derby High School (920 N. Rock Road, Derby)
Learn more by visiting our website, www.derbyschools.com, and clicking "Process for Success". This flyer will also be distributed in elementary school Thursday packets in January and can be picked up in middle school and high school offices. Additionally, we will be sending reminders about meeting dates via Skylert.
