Superintendent's Message

Scott DillIt is my genuine pleasure to welcome you to Poplar Bluff Schools.

As I enter into this, my second year in the district, I am now afforded the luxury of looking back at all we have accomplished together over the course of the last twelve months. This time last year the questions weighing on my mind related to the completion of massive construction and renovation projects. Those were exciting days, and the completed projects have forever changed the way we perceive our schools, and indeed the way we conduct the good, and important, work of educating our children.

Now, with those projects behind us, we are able to turn our vision to the horizon. We turn our vision from the improvement of our facilities to the improvement of ourselves. We have, this summer, engaged in many hours and days of professional development and learning to hone our craft and to become better equipped to meet the needs of all of our learners.

Our mission in the Poplar Bluff School District is - Achieving Excellence Through Learning: Every Child, Every Hour, Every Day. Those simple words are 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 work with hearts full of love and hope. We enter into this work with clarity of purpose and with full knowledge of the importance of every child, every hour, every day.

I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as your Superintendent of Schools. 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,
~Scott P. Dill
