Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower all students for the choices and challenges of the twenty-first century.  We believe that we should teach students to respect themselves, others, and the environment, that we should teach students to participate productively and responsibly in a rapidly changing society, that we should teach them to communicate effectively, that we should teach them to use cooperative and independent learning strategies, that we should teach them to apply problem solving processes, and that we should teach them to set and meet high standards.

Parent Portal/Information Now

In 2011, Dothan City Schools began offering the use of Parent Portal to all of their students and parents.  Over the past few years, there have been over 5,000 logins assigned to both parents and students.  Through Parent Portal, you can view student attendance, discipline, and grades.  If you have more than one student in Dothan City Schools, you can view all students through one login.   This is an excellent way for both students and parents to stay updated with student information.  If you would like to know how to get a parent portal login, please visit this link...
