Committed to a Community of Excellence
Director of Schools
Welcome to the Lebanon Special School District. Our district serves approximately 4,000 students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth grade. Our school system is served by over 585 dedicated men and women who are “Committed to a Community of Excellence” for all of our students. Our district includes four elementary schools (Byars Dowdy, Castle Heights, Coles Ferry and Sam Houston) and two middle schools (Walter J. Baird and Winfree Bryant).

Our success as a school district is the result of the commitment to our students and to excellence made by staff and faculty, in partnership with families, the Board of Education and our community partners. Our goal is to provide the best education possible to each student and the collaboration of the above parties is essential to this goal.

We welcome your involvement and investment in our schools. Thank you for entrusting your child’s education to the Lebanon Special School District. We appreciate your support and collaboration in making the Lebanon Special School District a true community of excellence! Please reach out to me or anyone on our staff if we can be of service to you.
