Dr. Torrance Choates takes the community on a virtual tour of the new high school.
Welcome to Sumter County Schools
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 3,700 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.
Dear SCS Family:
Welcome back as we begin our new 2020-2021 school year. I hope you have had a restful summer and are ready to make this year one of the best ever. With the start of this year, we have many opportunities and challenges ahead of us to improve the lives of our students.
Dr. Torrance Choates continues his "Teachers and Parents in Support of Students" recognition program at the monthly Board of Education Meetings. This month, Sumter County Elementary School’s principal, Dr. Sharon Tullis recognized J’mari Bowen (student), Miss Teira LaShay Wallace (teacher), Ms. Patricia Williams (paraprofessional), Miss Latonya Bowen (parent) and Mr. Anthony Darling, Sr. (custodian)
Recently the U.S. Department of Agriculture extended flexibility for school districts to continue offering meal service to children under the Seamless Summer Option.
The waiver qualifies all children ages 2-18 for free meals. This program is an extension of the National School Lunch Program and will run until December 31, 2020 or until funds are no longer available.
