At Decatur Public Schools, we have made it our mission to educate all students for lifelong success. Our vision is that all students will become responsible, caring and productive citizens of society in a setting where: students, parents, staff, and community members share responsibility; district leadership motivates people, policies, and decisions; and all resources are used effectively and efficiently. Thank you for visiting our website!
Each year the Decatur Public Schools Foundation recognizes an Outstanding Alumni of the Year and an Educator of the Year. The winners are honored at the annual "Celebrate! The Legacy of Learning" event that is held at Millikin University.
Find out all that our community has to offer by visiting the DPS Virtual Backpack. In an effort to "go green" and cut down on paper in the Friday Folders, we are providing all of our community resources online. We will update information as our community partners provide it to us.
