Superintendent's Message

Dear Emanuel County,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. I hope you spent the summer relaxing and enjoying time with your family and/or friends.

As we begin an exciting school year, I look forward to you being a part of our Emanuel County School family and hope you are excited about the year ahead of us. Please visit our webpage and our Social Media sites, and be looking out for Kinvo messages to stay up-to-date with the decisions that we are making as your school system to try and better serve our students. We are looking forward to a fantastic school year with our Emanuel County School System students.

I am honored to continue to serve as the Superintendent of the Emanuel County School District, and I look forward to working with parents, students, teachers, administrators, and community members to provide wonderful opportunities for every student to succeed. Our students are among some of the best in the state, and this district is filled with quality, dedicated professionals who want the best for each of our students. I appreciate our communities' support of our schools and students.

The very focal point of our mission is our students. By working together, we have an opportunity to build upon our successes to ensure that all students are learning at high levels and that each and every staff member in the district supports the efforts in our classrooms. Together we will be able to achieve our mission "to prepare and inspire all students for college and career success through personalized learning and relevant experiences." Please join us as we strive to accomplish our vision "to strengthen our community one student at a time."

One of our goals as your Emanuel County School System is that we will know, value, and work to inspire every child. Student success begins with relationships, high expectations, and support systems that provide the necessary resources to achieve those expectations. You will find that our faculty and staff care deeply about our students, and they will provide our students with the educational foundation and the solid Tier 1 Instruction that our students need to achieve. We will strive every day to live out our goals of F.A.M.I.L.Y. (Forget.About.Me.I.Love.You.) and S.A.S. (Service.Above.Self.), and we will work tirelessly for our students and staff each day to Learn ‘em! Love ‘em! and Lead ‘em! and to Stop! See the Need! Meet the Need! We are all in this together!

Greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in the Emanuel County School System!


In this with you all,

Scotty W. Hattaway
