Dr. Joseph Wise

Welcome to Duval County Public Schools’ Web site—a site we’ve re-designed to be a one-stop shop for information about our district.  It’s a place where we hope all members of our community—students, parents, teachers, administrators and all people interested in education here in Jacksonville—can get relevant and insightful information about who we are, and what we do. 

When I joined Duval County Public Schools nearly two years ago, I asked everyone in the district to encourage our students to dream bigger dreams—and to guide and direct each student towards achieving those dreams.  Appropriately, our district Web site address was updated to reflect our goals, and to remind us all of our purpose—to support, encourage and inspire our students. 

Our web site’s name was changed to www.dreamsbeginhere.org to better reflect our core mission: providing students with the foundation and skills upon which their futures will be built.  The site itself was re-designed to be more user-friendly, with easier access to information and easier to use navigational tools.  A favorite feature of mine is the Spotlight on Dreams section, which is filled with stories about our students and faculty—and their diverse and sometimes surprising journeys.   

I encourage you to use our new site frequently, and to talk about Duval County Public Schools—and all it offers—with everyone you meet.  With your support, our district will continue to make a difference in public education and—most importantly—in the lives of our students!

Let the dreams begin!
