Message from Dr. Carrie Skelton
Dear Parents, Community Members, and Other Stakeholders:
On October 20th, the Mississippi Department of Education released the 2015-2016 Accountability Results. While this is public information, I wanted to personally share the information on our website because I want you as stakeholders in our education system to hear from me where we stand. The district overall is a C rating, which is an increase from a D over the last few years. We had some bright spots and low spots as far as school level data is concerned. One bright spot I am proud to mention is Byhalia Elementary School moved from a long-standing D rating to a B accountability rating. I am so proud and excited for the staff and students who worked hard to make that happen. Mary Reid School and Potts Camp Middle School also earned B ratings and I am proud of them as well. Schools earning a C rating were H.W. Byers Middle and Potts Camp High School. Schools earning a D rating were H.W. Byers Elementary School, H.W. Byers High School, and Byhalia Middle School. The district had two schools F rated schools, Byhalia High School and Galena School.

Now that I have made you aware of the accountability ratings, I will stress to you that while I am proud of the bright spots in our data, I am dedicated to improving the overall education system in this county. We as a community of parents, educators, business leaders, community members and students must work together in order to set expectations and reach those goals. I am not satisfied with these results, and we are continuing to move towards improvement. I am so thankful for the dedicated staff we have and their willingness to put in the additional time necessary for moving our district forward. We have various initiatives in place and are working on developing others for increasing student achievement, not just for a test score but for the betterment of the whole child.

Being transparent and honest with the community is also part of that initiative for improvement. The school system needs your help, and there is no way for you to help if you aren't aware of the issues.

Our goal is to educate students so they can go onto college and become productive citizens within our community. I have the best interest of every child in our district at heart, and we have to work together to make the necessary changes to provide them with the education they deserve.
