Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the Sheffield City Schools' website. We truly appreciate you spending the time to explore the incredible opportunities at SCS.  Our website is designed to be a quick and easy way for you to learn about our school district. Along with information about the many accomplishments of our students, you will find how we are using the Sheffield City Schools' Guided Pathway for Success (GPS) to prepare our students to be college and career ready!  This website is also the gateway to explore the websites of our 4 schools and various programs that we offer for students, families and community residents. 

At SCS, we are committed to providing a challenging curriculum, skilled instruction, and a learning environment that responds to individual academic needs. Our dedicated and skilled teachers, along with our innovative school leaders, are guided by the belief that every student is capable of attaining high levels of educational achievement in preparation for meeting the rigorous demands of the 21st century.  Our Strategic Plan outlines our mission, beliefs, goals, and strategies that will guide our district in providing a world class education for each of our students.

At Sheffield City Schools, we understand that being a high performing school district does not happen in isolation.  We encourage a community approach and invite our parents, community leaders, churches, and civic organizations to work in collaboration with the school system to obtain success for each student.   

I am excited to be part of such an outstanding school district which values the education of our students.  Please continue to visit our website for updates and events throughout the 2016-2017 school year.  It is truly a great time to be a Sheffield Bulldog!

Keith Lankford,
