A personal welcome from our Superintendent

I am excited about the journey we are leading for Duval County Public Schools’ students.  We have an awesome responsibility owed to a very important group of people (130,000 students—whose dreams we must help realize).  With your help, Duval County Public Schools will ultimately become the best school district in the nation. I truly believe that. 

You are the “Dream Team” who can do it . . . who can keep dreams alive for all of our students. I sincerely thank each of you for your joining our team and your hard work and dedication will lead to many successes.
