Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members of Dorchester County Public Schools:
On behalf of the Dorchester County Board of Education, administration, faculty, and staff, I want to personally welcome you to an exciting year of teaching and learning. The Dorchester County Public School System is committed to providing a quality education to all students in a supportive learning environment as well as delivering a rigorous curriculum daily that promotes lifelong learning and fosters respect for self and others. Each of our schools offer a wide variety of unique programs to address your child’s needs, aspirations and learning style. It is our goal to ensure all our students are “College and Career Ready” to be able to compete in our transitioning global economy. As Rita Pierson, educator, once said, “Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, one who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.” I challenge you to become a “Champion” to at least one student in our District.
In closing, I would like to thank the Dorchester County Public Schools community for the opportunity to serve as your Superintendent. I look forward to us working together to support our mission and serving as “Champions” for our students.
Dr. Diana Mitchell
Superintendent of Schools
