District Leadership

Dr. Scott DillIt is my genuine pleasure to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year.

The month of July 2022 marks the first time in 24 continuous months that we have not been in session. Those months in which we accomplished so much for our students and community exacted a heavy toll upon all of us who accomplished this herculean task. The feeling of relief as we closed the summer school session this year was real and palpable. Please understand me – we love our students and live to serve – but we have given to the fullest during this extraordinary period. Now, it is time to get back to basics.

The Poplar Bluff School District's mission is clear: Achieving excellence through learning: Every child, every hour, every day. The implications of this mission are far-reaching in terms of professional practice and practical application. To truly embrace an educational philosophy this broad in scope requires that we, collectively, believe that all of our students can learn and achieve at high levels. It further requires the foundational belief that they will do so because of our actions and decisions as professional educators.

The very purpose of our system of public education is to prepare our children to participate in our great republic. Our society requires citizens capable of making informed decisions on complex issues. This must, therefore, be the goal for every graduate of our school system. The task is best accomplished through a partnership between parents and the school district. Working collaboratively, we can ensure our children's prosperity and safeguard our great nation's future.

We enter this good and important work with hearts full of love and hope. We commence this year with clarity of purpose and a complete understanding of the importance of every child entrusted to our care. 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 you the fullest measure of whatever time and talent my creator has graced me with in this life.
