Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the website of the McDuffie County School System.  I am honored to serve as the Superintendent of the McDuffie County School District and look forward to working with parents and students, teachers and administrators, and the community of McDuffie County to provide optimal opportunities for every student to follow a successful path to College and Career Readiness.  In McDuffie County, we are blessed to have educators who hold award-winning credentials in their fields and who recognize that students are our number one priority.
 
McDuffie County Schools, during my administration, will remain focused on providing outstanding customer service to the entire education community.  We encourage and welcome your questions and comments so that we can continually improve the services we provide.
 
As Superintendent, I take seriously my responsibility as a steward of McDuffie County‚Äôs resources.  With every taxpayer dollar invested, I am committed to creating world-class educational services for our parents and students.  Residents of McDuffie County must be confident that when they invest in education, they will reap a dividend on that investment through improved academic achievement and an improved quality of education.
 
By creating and continuing partnerships and working collaboratively, I am confident that we will continue our legacy of academic excellence.  Maxwell Elementary School and Thomson High School are both Georgia and National Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence, and for the past several years, Dearing Elementary, Maxwell Elementary, Thomson Elementary, and Norris Elementary, have been recognized as Georgia Title I Distinguished Schools.  Further, all of the McDuffie County Schools are fully accredited by state standards, the Georgia Accrediting Commission, and SACS-CASI.
        
As a parent with two children in McDuffie County Schools, I am looking forward to working with you to ensure that all McDuffie County graduates are not only College and Career Ready, but are fully prepared to compete internationally.  The children of McDuffie County deserve no less. 
 
 
If at any time you have questions or concerns, please call upon us.
