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.
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
Let the dreams begin!
