Superintendent's Message

Dr. Arnetta Crosby

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Covington County School District Website!

I want to express my sincere appreciation to everyone who has made my transition to the Office of Superintendent a smooth and pleasant experience!  Our district has much to be proud of as we make history! It is my hope that the community continues to be more united and    proud of our schools!

It is our desire to provide Covington County students with a very high quality instruction that will allow each student to be well prepared for the next step in their life. It is our desire to give our students the best education that we can offer while maintaining a strong financial position.

This is why we have chosen as our school motto:  “Every Student Matters and Every Moment Counts”

Every student is important and deserves the best education that we can give them but this requires that we utilize every minute and every second that they are entrusted to our schools.

Our work together will require teamwork, collaboration and shared leadership toward common mission, vision, values and goals. We will focus on empowering all students to excel in a global society. We plan to focus our instructional curriculum to include innovative approaches to teach students empowerment, accountability and responsibility.

I am humbled to be the superintendent of such an outstanding school district. I look forward to meeting and seeing each one of you.


Arnetta K. Crosby, PH.D.
