Superintendent Message

Welcome back parents, students, and staff!

As the Community Superintendent for the Georgia/Alabama Community, I am excited about starting a new school year in partnership with Fort Benning, Fort Rucker, and Maxwell AFB. All of the schools within the Georgia/Alabama Community will begin on August 8th and I have plans to visit each school within the first week. I am extremely excited to see all of the smiling faces and welcome our new students and faculty!

Throughout the Georgia/Alabama Community, we encompass 7 schools that are divided among 3 installations. We have 5 elementary schools and 2 middle schools with an enrollment total of approximately 3,300 students. Even though we do not host any high schools, we proudly work with the neighboring communities to ensure all of our children receive the best education possible.

I am happy to announce that we are welcoming parents back into the schools this year as volunteers and to participate in special activities and events with their children. As the DoDEA COVID Guidance changes, we will continue to update our parents and staff to ensure we are following all COVID mitigation strategies. We are looking forward to a great year and I am so proud to be part of this amazing community.
