Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower all students for the choices and challenges of the twenty-first century.  We believe that we should teach students to respect themselves, others, and the environment, that we should teach students to participate productively and responsibly in a rapidly changing society, that we should teach them to communicate effectively, that we should teach them to use cooperative and independent learning strategies, that we should teach them to apply problem solving processes, and that we should teach them to set and meet high standards.

Summer Bridge 2015 Presentation






Dothan City Schools Institute 2015

Dothan City Schools Institute 2015 was held on Wednesday, August 5, 2015.  ALL Dothan City Schools employees gathered at Wiregrass Church for a morning of conversation, a time for gathering information, presentation of grants and motivational messages.  This time is used as a "Pep Rally" to get the new school year started on a positive note.  Thank you to Mayor Mike Schmitz for his words of encouragement and to Tami Culver and DEF Board Members for the over $45,000.00 in grants presented to DCS teachers.    Thank you to Josh Sundquist for his motivation as the 2015-16 year begins.  Josh is a Paralympian, a bestselling author and motivational speaker. He lost his left leg to Ewing's sarcoma at age nine and later became a Paralympic ski racer. Check him out... joshsundquist.com. A big thank you to Wiregrass Church for allowing Dothan City Schools to use their facility again this year to accomodate the large group of employees and dignitaries and to all of those working behind the scenes to make this event a success.
