Sedona-Oak Creek Unified School District is a family with the motto of One District, One Team. In the small rural district, students have multiple opportunities to shine and experience activities, athletics, and clubs that they may not be able to in a larger district. SOCUSD is unique because of the strong community support and willingness to provide extraordinary opportunities for all students. The facilities are outstanding complete with Red Rock views and adventure at every turn.
Profile of the District
Residents of Coconino and Yavapai counties voted to form a new school district. This 93% voter approval resulted in the creation of the Sedona-Oak Creek Joint Unified School District No. 9 in fiscal year 1991-92. The District was formed from a portion of Cottonwood-Oak Creek Elementary School District No. 6 of Yavapai County, Arizona; Mingus Union High School District No. 4 of Yavapai County, Arizona; and Flagstaff Unified School District No. 1 of Coconino County, Arizona. The District is located in both Yavapai and Coconino counties. It provides a program of public education from pre-kindergarten through grade twelve, with total enrollment of 767 students. The projected enrollment for fiscal year 2019-20 is 737.
