OUR VISION
Our vision is to be a cohesive group committed to the success of each instructional staff member to make sure those who are charged with instruction have the support to improve continuously.

OUR MISSION
To provide support to all personnel involved in instruction so that students will have the skills to be successful in their present and future world.

ACCREDITATION
Regional accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) provides benefits to Douglas County elementary, middle, and high schools in many ways.  SACS standards help to insure that uniform procedures for establishing curriculum offerings and awarding credit are practiced throughout the southeast and the entire country (through cooperating regional agencies).  The criteria offer proven and consistent methods of evaluating school programs.
