Welcome to the 2022 – 2023 school year!

The Covington County School District is made up of eight schools and two enhanced learning
centers serving the Collins, Hopewell, Mount Olive, and Seminary communities. Collins Elementary
School and Seminary Elementary School serve students in grades K-4; Hopewell Elementary School
serves students in grades K-6 th ; Carver Middle School and Seminary Middle School serve students
in grades 5 th -8 th ; Collins High School and Seminary High School serve students in grades 9 th – 12 th .
We are blessed to have a Career and Technical Center that provides course work in Work- Based
learning and 21 st Century Skills-Based course work. The Covington County Education Center
provides services in Speech Therapy, Mental Health, Behavioral Health, and Health Services along
with Drop Out Prevention Services through our alternative school program. The schools collectively
provide instruction for over 2600 students.
Every decision that we make in the CCSD is made after asking the question, “How can this decision
impact student learning?” This position is born out in the Beliefs and Mission of our district. The
Strategic Planning Community Stakeholder’s Team recently revised both to reflect and renew our
commitment to excellence. Please take a moment and read them.

• We believe everyone is a learner and a teacher.
• We believe all students deserve to receive what they need for success.
• We believe quality educators are essential to achieving excellence.
• We believe family engagement is vital to student success.
• We believe active community support is critical to district success.
• We believe relationships are the foundation for success.
• We believe a safe and well-maintained environment is critical.


The Covington County School District, in collaboration with families and
communities, is dedicated to developing productive, responsible
individuals by providing a relevant and challenging education in a safe
and orderly environment.


Lastly, I thank the Covington County School District Board of Directors for all that they do on behalf
of students and for giving me the opportunity to serve as the Superintendent of Schools. The thirty
years that I have worked in this district have made me who I am. There is no greater service to
those that poured into my life personally and professionally than to make every effort to support the
learning of EVERY student enrolled in the CCSD. My personal mission in the 22-23 school year is
to live out what Colossians 3:23 states, “And whatever you do, work heartily as for the Lord and not
for men.”
