Dr. Debra Dace



Greetings to all of the educators (Faculty & Staff), parents, students and stakeholders in this Great Community of Greenville, MS.  I am grateful to the Board of Trustees for entrusting me to lead our district to seek Excellence for All.  My personal foundation in education was received in the halls of Em Boyd and Manning Elementary, Coleman Middle School, and a portion of my freshman year at Greenville High.  I completed high school in Washington County (Riverside High School) and I am vested in this community and committed to our students.  

We have made it this far by recruiting quality teachers and staying focused on the most valuable assets in our schools-OUR STUDENTS!  With that being the case, I invite each of you to join the “5S Movement”.  Your support is crucial to our goal of providing Safe learning spaces, Supervised by quality teachers committed to teaching and learning, which will improve the quality of education our students receive in order to improve Scores. That winning combination will certainly garner us Student Success
