Mr. Cory Uselton, Superintendent


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.

We are excited about the 2019-2020 school year. Exciting days lie ahead for DeSoto County Schools!
