"BSD will continue to maintain the mask use protocol on all campuses through the end of the spring semester. While we understand both sides of the mask issue, after our research and feedback, we felt it is too disruptive to the educational process and local safety issues to change our procedures at this time. We appreciate everyone's efforts to finish strong with our continued mask protocols and the 3 W’s [Washing hands, Wearing masks, Watching distance] until the end of the school year. The BSD Board of Education will make recommendations for next school year at a later date. Onward Pioneers!" - Dr. Michael Hester

The Batesville School District is made up of seven great schools that offer personalized learning plans for every child.

White River Academy is our alternative learning environment for grades 6-12 non-traditional students.
BSD offers co-curricular and extracurricular activities that fits the personal interests and strengths of individual students. Our district offers a complete fine arts program K-12. We also offer competitive sports in grades 3-12 and many intramural participation opportunities. Through these activities students will learn leadership, work ethic, citizenship, and teamwork. These character building traits exemplify Pioneer Pride!
