Welcome to Sumter County Schools

Graduation from high school is a special time; it is the reward for many years of hard work. To maintain the dignity and honor of the graduation ceremony, we ask that parents, friends, and guest hold applause and noise making when students’ names are called and throughout the entire program until graduation is complete.  

Deputies and school staff will be in the stands and major disruptions will result in the removal of the individual(s) from the graduation ceremony.

The following are not allowed inside the stadium or gymnasium:

·        Noisemakers (air horns)

·        Balloons

·        Anything that can be deemed a distraction

·        Umbrellas

Graduation will be held at Finklea-Robinson Field in the Alton Shell Stadium on May 24, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.


The Sumter County School District is located in Sumter County, Georgia, the home of the 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter.  The District serves over 4,700 students from Americus, Leslie, Desoto and Plains. Teachers, administrators, support staff members and the Board of Education are committed to achieving the mission of graduating all students. We are also committed to providing a quality, equitable education for all students and providing appropriate professional learning opportunities for all staff members.
