Welcome to the Murray County School District. It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Superintendent of Murray County Schools. In this community, we take pride in our unity, our quality of life, and the success of our local schools. Our district is committed to student success...no exceptions, no excuses!
We believe in the extraordinary potential of all of our more than 7,400 students and are committed to meeting their individual needs. We believe that high school graduation is the key to lifelong success and high expectations result in high achievement. Our work together requires teamwork, dedication, and collaboration. That collaboration extends beyond our school district staff and students to the entire community. Truly, the success we experience in our buildings is the direct result of the support we receive from our parents, community members, and other Murray County residents.
This school year the district will participate in an AdvancED accreditation review. We will follow that process with the development of a very thorough five-year strategic plan (2017-2022). We will also begin construction on the new Spring Place Elementary School. Effective relationships are based on respect, trust, and honest communication. It is our plan to engage our community in creating this shared vision that will guide our efforts.
We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff, and with the help and support of our community, we anticipate achieving new levels of greatness. I recognize that strong schools are the foundation of a strong community and look forward to working with all members of our school stakeholder family, as we continue to make strides in the education of our students.
I invite you to join in our journey of continuous improvement. If you have any questions, or if we can be of assistance, please feel free to call us at (706) 695-4531.
