Message from Superintendent Daryl Blaxton:

The Pocahontas School District provides a rigorous, high quality education for all students. We offer numerous opportunities for our students and are proud of our outstanding academic programs as well as our highly successful extra-curricular programs. The district’s focus continues to be “Preparing Today for Tomorrow” while creating a culture of continuous improvement, collaboration between all stakeholders, and shared accountability.

By focusing on:

  1. data-driven decision making
  2. research based instructional practices
  3. a safe and caring school community of learners
  4. collaborative partnerships between the school, home and community, the district continues to show steady improvement gains.

Our overriding goal is to ensure that every child meets adequate yearly progress.

I feel very fortunate to be a part of not only the Pocahontas School District but the Pocahontas community, as well. Through the combined efforts of all stakeholders, our community and our schools are a very special place to live and learn.

I hope that you find our website useful in providing information, communication, and insight about our district, schools, faculty, and administration. In addition to our website, you may stay abreast of district information by following me on Twitter at @BlaxtonDaryl.

It is our sincere desire to work with our community and parents to meet the needs of each and every student in the district. We look forward to working with each of you in the coming school year.

Should you have any additional questions regarding the Pocahontas School District, please feel free to contact me personally or one of our building principals.
