Superintendent's Message

Superintendent’s Message

It has been just a few short months since the graduation of the class of 2016.  During the summer those graduates have begun the next chapter of their lives by enrolling in colleges, technical schools, joining the military or the work force.  We wish them all the very best in the next chapter of their lives as they move into the world and represent their alma mater, Decatur County schools.

As one class moves on those left behind move up a notch and continue their journey toward their own high school graduation.  This year will be a year full of excitement and joyful memories for the class of 2017 and Decatur County Schools.  I look forward to sharing in those memories with you.

Decatur County Schools continues to offer outstanding educational opportunities from an awesome group of educators.  We offer many diverse academic opportunities to fit the needs of our students as well as many different extra-curricular activities rich in tradition and pride.  Our community has a lot to be proud of in Decatur County.  It is an honor to work with our parents and community members to help all of our children succeed in all that they do.

It is our duty in Decatur County Schools to always “Put Kids First” in all we do.  We will continue to create a culture of high expectations and never waiver in our commitment to help all of our kids succeed.  Decatur County Schools will always strive to be the best system in the state in all we do.

We look forward to another outstanding year with our student in our pursuit of greatness – “The Bearcat Way!”


Tim Cochran, Superintendent
