There's an App for That!

Dekalb County School District has partnered with Canvas to provide a new Learning Management System. Canvas is a digital tool designed to support teaching and learning.  Students can access course materials, collaborate with their teachers and classmates as well as submit assignments and feedback. 

Canvas provides an easy way for parents to know what your student is doing in the program.  You can observe your student's Canvas activity online using any internet browser or through the Canvas Parent app that can be downloaded to an iOS or Android device.

Canvas also includes an app for students, parents and teachers!
 

Mission & Vision

The vision of the DeKalb County School District is to inspire our community of learners to achieve educational excellence. Our mission is to ensure student success, leading to higher education, work, and life-long learning. We are making this vision and mission a reality – every day, in every classroom throughout the District.

Through community forums, focus groups, listening sessions, and more, we have engaged our stakeholders, refined our objectives, honed our procedures, and formulated a robust, highly-structured yet agile and adaptive strategic plan. We are pleased with the progress we have made thus far, and excited about the future – of our District, our community, and, most importantly, the 100,000+ students who daily bring to us their limitless potential.

The District has created performance measures, targets, and initiatives to ensure success in each goal area. A monitoring and data collection process has been developed, and rigorous progress check procedures have been implemented. At the local level, on-going training sessions are offered to all principals in order to support the work of aligning, refining, monitoring, and evaluating the continuous improvement efforts of each individual school.

As a community of learners, we are committed to excellence in everything we do – within the classroom and throughout the District. This continuous improvement process permeates each aspect of our Strategic Plan, and we are honored to partner with you to make it a reality for all.
