DCHS to Participate in
Cantus High School Residency Program


Dassel-Cokato High School will be participating in the Cantus Residency Program this school year.

Cantus (pronounced 'con-toos) is a professional nine member male vocal ensemble that tours extensively throughout the United States and around the world. The residency program consists of four visits to each high school throughout the year and a festival day and culminating concert in April. The program is free to the school, and students receive complimentary Cantus concert tickets as well.

Mr. Nate Raabe, choral instructor, submitted an application last year to be a part of the Cantus High School Residency Program, and DC was chosen as one of three schools to take part in the program. The other schools are Minnehaha Academy and Irondale High School.

For more info about Cantus, visit their website www.cantussings.org

Dassel-Cokato Ranked 30th best High School in MN


In a recent US News and World Report ranking of Minnesota's 772 high schools, Dassel-Cokato was rated at number 30. This is the second year in a row that DCHS is ranked in the top 30.

This very high placement was based on a comprehensive ranking methodology including educating all of its students and showing academic outcomes. More information about the report, as well as complete rankings, can be found on the US News and World Report website.

Free Mobile App Available for Parent/Student Portal

A free mobile app is now available for Dassel-Cokato Campus portals.  The apps will allow students and parents to check key features of Dassel-Cokato’s Campus portal from their mobile devices. 

The app is available from iTunes Apps Store, Google Play and Amazon Android App Store.  Instructions for downloading the app can be found by logging into your Campus portal account and clicking one of the three app store icons on the bottom of your main page.


A six digit code for our district is also available on these directions; you will need this code when downloading the app onto your mobile device.  Once downloaded onto your device, you will log into the app using the same username and password you use when logging onto the portal on the web (passwords are case sensitive).

The mobile app provides you access to the following portal information:

  1. Daily planner (assignments, class and grade information)
  2. Assignments (combined for all classes by date)
  3. Attendance (by period and date)
  4. Grades (progress, term and assignment grades)
  5. Schedules

The mobile app is designed for your convenience and “data on the go.”  The web portal is still the place to go for complete details and reports such as transcripts and lunch account information.

For more details, please see the videos provided by Infinite Campus.

Note: If you have not yet activated your Campus parent portal account, please contact the building secretary at your child’s school for assistance.  A single activation will allow you to see account information for all of your children in the district.

Weather Related Announcements

This year we are taking full-advantage of our Campus student system and added a feature that is able to contact all of our parents and staff in a very short period of time for important announcements from school. For late-starts, early-outs and cancellations Mr. Powers will use this system. Cell phone numbers, home phone numbers and other numbers for parents will be called with the notification . Mr. Powers will also contact radio and TV stations as he has done in the past. If you need to update your contact information, please contact the DCHS Office. (more)

Helpful Videos Available

The high school guidance staff and administration has held several help sessions this school year. You may view an archived video of the presentations online. You may also download or view the PowerPoint presentations shared at each. The sessions included information on college credit, financial aid, registration and the Plan test.

New ACT Prep Site Available

Minnesota Career Information System (MnCIS) and the new ACT Online Prep Course and Practice Tests are available to Dassel-Cokato students preparing to take the ACT.

The Online course allows students to take a pretest and then customizes lessons for them based on their pretest results. In addition to test content they also have some very good test strategies.

The other option students have is to take one of 3 practice tests in English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing. They can do this timed or untimed.

If students or parents have questions about this program, they should contact Mr. Tool in the HS guidance office.
