The History of Colbert County Schools

The Colbert County Board of Education was founded on August 13, 1914.  The first Superintendent of Education was Mr. J.T. McGee. 

Colbert School District is nestled in the Northwest corner of Alabama, where the Tennessee River runs deep and wide, also best known as "The Shoals."  We are also snuggled between Ivy Green, Home of Helen Keller and the Alabama Music Hall of Fame.

Colbert County School System serves five elementary schools and three high schools. The high schools serve grades 7-12 and elementary schools serve pre-k -6. The district has partnered with the Office of School Readiness, and 162 four-year-olds are served through our First Class Pre-k program.

Our remarkable 2,600 students are served by 398 finest employees in the area. The public low-income student percent is 72.21% county-wide. Our Title I schools include five schools with school-wide programs.

Our proudest moment was when we made history by establishing an Education Foundation. The Foundation awarded over $28,000 to our teachers in grants. The funds raised went directly back into the classroom.

The Colbert County Reporter, a local print media which Captain Keller (Helen Keller’s father published), has partnered with our FBLA students. Each Friday our students write and produce articles for the historical paper.

I present to some and introduce to others, Colbert County Schools.
