    Dear DeSoto Parish Schools’ Family,

    I hope that you had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to an outstanding school year. We have been hard at work over the summer preparing for the 2019-20 school year. Throughout the summer we had students involved in many different learning opportunities, including the very first Superintendent’s Summer Academic Challenge. We are proud of each student who participated and their effort to continue learning beyond the bell.

    This year we welcome the class of 2033 to our Pre-K classrooms. It is hard to imagine what the world will be like in 14 years but knowing the investment we are making in our students each day gives me great hope for the future of our communities and our system.

    As the school year starts, we continue to find ways to improve our system and better serve you, our stakeholders. Our number one priority will remain student achievement, and we promise to keep focused on continuously improving the academic opportunities for our students, as well as, our never-ending commitment to ensuring a safe learning environment. Many teachers spent time over the summer taking advantage of various professional learning opportunities, while others attended graduate courses or worked collaboratively with their team.

    We have made several capital improvements to many campuses across the district and have recently upgraded our technology infrastructure to better protect our system from potential cyber-attacks. This year will mark a major milestone in our multi-year Digital DeSoto Initiative.  Throughout the district, students in grades 3-12 will utilize Chromebooks to facilitate instruction, while students in grades PK-2 will utilize iPads as we challenge our students to thrive in the digital age.   The use of technology is not exclusive to instruction here in DeSoto. We are excited to launch a new parent-friendly app called Edulog. This web application will allow parents to track their children’s school bus in real time and set up notifications or alerts to keep families aware of bus arrival and departure times. We will be sharing more information on how to get connected throughout the coming days.

    Thanks so much for sharing your greatest treasure, and entrusting us to challenge, support, and love your children.  Together we can make a difference in the lives of our students and in the future of our communities.

    For Students' Sake,

    Clay Corley
