Superintendent News


August 11, 2017

Dear DCS Parents and Community,

Thank you for your continued support of Dexter kids! We’re happy to share that the bond proposal passed on Tuesday, August 8th with a 68% approval rate! Our community’s commitment to our kids is tremendous and we are so thankful to each of you for your dedication to kids.

Over the next several months, we’ll work through the planning of projects and will keep you informed on the progress. On Wednesday, the Board of Education approved bids for surveying and soil testing to begin the process of designing and building the new elementary school. Thank you for your commitment to Our Kids, Our Community, and Our Future!

Attached please find the back-to-school calendar for all buildings.

Go Dreads!!!


Christopher Timmis, Ed.D.
