Superintendent’s Message

By Clay Corley, Superintendent of DeSoto Parish Schools

Dear DeSoto Schools Family,

It is hard to believe we are halfway through the summer break. I hope you and your families have been able to enjoy some quality time together thus far.

It has certainly been a busy June with summer learning wrapping up last week. This year’s Level Up DeSoto summer enrichment programs have been a great opportunity for student remediation and acceleration with many exciting activities. This, along with numerous other activities on our campuses, has been a wonderful way to keep students engaged outside of the traditional school year.

Here at the district office and across every school in our system, we are busy making final preparations for the 2022-23 school year. We are excited to provide a “Back to School” landing page on our website designed to support students and families as we return to school next month desotopsb.com/page/back-to-school. 

As the most important contributor to your child’s future success, we are once again depending on you to partner with us in ensuring that our mission is fulfilled, To care for our students, ensure their learning and celebrate their graduation as citizens prepared to transform their dreams into realities.  One of the best ways to contribute to that mission is to keep yourself informed of activities and opportunities involving your child. You can keep yourself in the loop and receive real-time updates from our schools throughout the year by downloading our Mobile App.

Follow these steps when downloading:

  1. Search ‘DeSoto Parish Schools’ in your phone’s app store and download the app
  2. Select ‘ALLOW’ when prompted on initial download to ensure you receive notifications
  3. Open the DPSB app, and navigate to the left-side menu for ‘SETTINGS’
  4. Ensure your settings are turned on and your school is selected

I hope you have an awesome month of July! Please stay cool and enjoy the remainder of your summer. I look forward to seeing you soon!

For Students’ Sake,

Clay Corley
