Each school year provides the opportunity for the faculty and staff of Colbert County Schools the opportunity to be a champion for your child- no person’s role is forsaken in our fight to provide the best quality education for our students. We want you to trust that we value the time we spend with your children and that we are working tirelessly to ensure that they graduate from our school system with the skills they need to succeed. Our administrators, teachers, central office staff, and support staff are of the highest caliber and go beyond the call of duty each and every day. We seek daily to enrich and improve the resources that we currently provide to our students and to find new ways to prepare them for the future.

We would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to our parents and partners in the community. Without your support, our efforts would not carry the same impact. The way that you care for your students shows when they come to school, and we hope that you can see the way that we care for them when they come home. Educating the students of Colbert County is not a project for just the central office and schools, but for all of us. As we move forward, we hope that our relationship with you is fortified and creates a network of resources that benefit the students in our community.

Thank you for visiting the Colbert County Schools' website. The administrators, faculty and staff of the Colbert County School System take tremendous pride in working to ensure that our children succeed academically and personally. If I can ever be of assistance, please feel free to contact me via email ( or phone (256-386-8565).


Your Superintendent,

Dr. Gale D. Satchel

One Team..... One Goal..... Our Legacy!!
