Superintendent's Message


It is my genuine pleasure to welcome you to Poplar Bluff Schools. 

Never in the history of our great nation has so much been asked of our public schools. Public education has become another piece in the elaborate political machinations of policymakers at every level. We, as professional educators, are often lambasted in the press and castigated via social media for not doing enough. 

I will say this as plainly as I can: I LOVE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

Our public schools, despite rhetoric to the contrary, are not failing. This public school is not failing. Everybody that works for this school goes above and beyond on a regular basis for one simple reason – it matters. The work we do every single day changes lives for the better, and forever.

Our mission in the Poplar Bluff School District is - Achieving Excellence Through Learning: Every Child, Every Hour, Every Day. Those simple words serve as a clarion call to action for educators and parents to do whatever it takes to ensure all of our students are learning at high levels. We must work collaboratively to ensure learning occurs for every child, every hour, every day.

We enter into this good and important work with hearts full of love and hope. We enter into this work with clarity of purpose and with a complete understanding of the importance to every child, every hour, every day. 

I am honored to serve as your Superintendent. I will endeavor daily to be worthy of the trust and the responsibility extended to me. I will give to each of you the fullest measure of whatever time and talent I have been granted in this life.

Onward and upward,
~Dr. Scott Dill
