BELLE PLAINE PUBLIC SCHOOLS
  MAINTAINS HIGH 'CAPTURE RATE' 
 
 
86% of school age children living in the district attend Belle Plaine Public Schools. That's the second highest "capture rate" of residential students compared to the seven comparable Districts. Capture rate is a reflection on the quality of local public schools, as well as the presence of charter schools, nonpublic schools and other educational alternatives in the area. We are continuously working to keep as many of the community's students as possible enrolled in Belle Plaine Schools. It's important to our district to continue to enhance our academic and co-curriculum offerings and working to stem the departures by enhancing our programs and facilities. It's very important for us as a district to work towards being able to meet the needs of every student within the district.
