Free Driver Education Course

DeWitt High School, in conjunction with the University of Arkansas Phillips Community College, will offer students the opportunity to take Driver Education beginning Monday, July 6 and ending Thursday, July 30 from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Students must have a valid driver's license and insurance in order to meet the qualifications for this course. The course is FREE, but there are limited slots; first come, first served. For more information, please contact Mrs. Ashley Smith at DHS.


Credit Recovery at DHS

DeWitt High School has implemented Apex Learning, Inc., an online credit recovery program to enable students to earn credit for a failed course in math, English, history, and science. The fee for each semester course is $75 and must be completed by August 8. For more information, please contact Mrs. Ashley Smith at DHS.


Groundbreaking Ceremony

Construction on the new DeWitt Middle School has officially begun with the ceremonial groundbreaking at the new site on West 16th Street on June 17. Dr. Lynne Dardenne welcomed a large crowd of students, district staff, and members of the community to the event. DMS students participated by leading the Pledge of Allegiance and playing the National Anthem to open the ceremony. DeWitt School Board President Barry Joe Wilson also addressed the crowd remarking that those who broke ground in the 1960s for the high school had a dream of one day having all the campuses in one location and how we can all take pride that students for generations will enjoy going to school in a nice facility.

An ongoing Construction Journal will be available on the district website throughout the process of building the new school. You'll find the link beneath Upcoming Events on the left side of this page. Please visit often!
