Babette Duty Superintendent

Welcome to the 2023 – 2024 school year!

The Covington County School District is made up of seven schools and two enhanced learning centers serving the Collins, Hopewell, Mount Olive, and Seminary communities. Collins Elementary School serves students in grades Pre-K–6th, Seminary Elementary School serve students in grades K-4; Hopewell Elementary School serves students in grades K-6th; Seminary Middle School serves students in grades 5th-8th; Collins High School serves students in grade 7-12; Mount Olive Attendance Center serves students in grade K-12; and Seminary High School serve students in grades 9th – 12th.

We are blessed to have a Career and Technical Center that provides course work in Work- Based learning along with 21st Century Skills-Based course work. The Covington County Education Center provides services in Speech Therapy, Mental Health, Behavioral Health, and Health Services along with Drop-Out Prevention Services through our alternative school program. The schools collectively provide instruction for approximately 2600 students.

Every decision that we make in the CCSD is made after asking the question, “How can this decision impact student learning?” This position is born out in the Beliefs and Mission of our district.


  • We believe everyone is a learner and a teacher.

  • We believe all students deserve to receive what they need for success.

  • We believe quality educators are essential to achieving excellence.

  • We believe family engagement is vital to student success.

  • We believe active community support is critical to district success.

  • We believe relationships are the foundation for success.

  • We believe a safe and well-maintained environment is critical.


The Covington County School District, in collaboration with families and communities, is dedicated to developing productive, responsible individuals by providing a relevant and challenging education in a safe and orderly environment.

Lastly, I thank the Covington County School District Board of Directors for all that they do on behalf of students and for giving me the opportunity to serve as the Superintendent of Schools. The thirty years that I have worked in this district have made me who I am. There is no greater service to those that poured into my life personally and professionally than to make every effort to support the learning of EVERY student enrolled in the CCSD.

Sincerely, Babette Duty

Superintendent Covington County School District
