A Message from Supt. Uselton
Welcome to our DeSoto County Schools website! I would like to take this opportunity to say I am honored and excited to be your Superintendent of Education. DeSoto County Schools has been recognized as one of the top school districts in Mississippi, and I truly believe that we have the potential to be one of the best school districts in the nation.
As the parent of two children that attend DeSoto County Schools, I can relate to the needs of our parents. First and foremost, I want to make sure that we have measures in place to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students. I know that every parent wants their children to be safe at school, and I also believe that students must feel safe before learning can take place. Additionally, I want to make sure that our students have every opportunity to be successful in all of facets of their life including academics, extracurricular activities, and post-secondary endeavors. As Superintendent, I look forward to seeing our students pursue their goals, and I hope that I can be of assistance to them along the way.
I look forward to seeing the accomplishments of our students and teachers during the remainder of the spring semester. We have over 33,000 students that are eager to learn, and we have over 2,100 students that are looking forward to graduating from high school this upcoming May. Exciting days lie ahead for DeSoto County Schools!
