From the Desk of Branson Townsend:
Thank you for visiting our website! Decatur County has long been recognized as a great school district at the local and state level.
Decatur County students perform well on academic assessments, parents are involved in the learning process, and the local businesses and civic organizations provide outstanding support to our schools. We are fortunate to have a great community where we can raise our children.
As Director of Schools, I encourage you to visit this website for timely information related to the programs and services provided by the Decatur County Board of Education. The Decatur County School System has great leadership provided by supervisors and program administrators. We have a staff of dedicated teachers and support staff who work tirelessly with our students to help them achieve their highest educational potential. The teachers care about each individual student they serve and want them to be successful.
The Decatur County School System has implemented programs from pre-kindergarten to high school-college dual credit to encourage students in their educational pursuits and to enhance the curriculum available to students. The focus of Decatur County Schools is student-centered and data-driven.
As stated earlier, community support is outstanding in Decatur County. Each citizen of Decatur County is a stakeholder in the Decatur County School System, and on behalf of the Decatur County Board of Education, I want to thank you for supporting our schools.
Let us all take pride in Decatur County and Decatur County Schools as we strive to meet the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of our children in order for each one of them to become a productive and responsible citizen.
Director of Schools
