A Message from the Superintendent


Welcome to DeWitt Public Schools, Home of the Panthers and commitment to excellence. I am excited to serve the district and look forward to the 2021-22 school year. I have spent the last several weeks learning more about the district and have the goal of working collaboratively with the Board and DPS stakeholders to focus on strategic planning to help us update vision, mission, goals, and core beliefs to continue the great work already underway and move the district forward. Trust, relationships, communication, and inclusivity are important goals for me as a leader this first year.
