Press Release

Dear Parents, Students, and Staff,

I am honored to join this community and serve as the superintendent for DeKalb County School District. I look forward to reporting to work on July 1, 2020, and meeting our staff and community stakeholders.

My family is also excited about this move to DeKalb County.

While I know this is a challenging time for us all, academic excellence is my priority. I can assure you that I am committed to inspiring our students to learn, dream big, and reach their highest potential. I look forward to working with all of you to take DCSD to the next level. I will do this by assessing the great work that has already been accomplished, as well as building upon the mission, vision, and tradition of the DeKalb County School District. I am grateful for this opportunity to champion for our scholars and transform academic outcomes for our community.

Once again, thank you DCSD. I’m excited about our future together.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Cheryl Watson-Harris
