Superintendent, Leonard Whalen

On behalf of the Board of Education and staff, welcome to Dawson Springs Independent Schools.  This website will be a way for you to learn about our district and keep track of important dates and events. 

Dawson Springs Independent School District has a long tradition of excellence as our schools have provided an outstanding education for our students. We recognize that the education we provide will shape the success of our students, community and state in the future. For that reason, we take education serious as we constantly work to improve our professional performance for the benefit of our children’s education.

Building on a foundation of past success, our goal is to increase the percentage of our students who reach state and federal standards in the core content areas, ACT benchmarks and preparedness for college. We believe our children can reach these goals through the dedicated efforts of our teachers and staff, the leadership of our school board and administrators, and the support of our parents and community.  

I hope you will be a part of our dynamic team as we work to reach our goals. Please contact us if we can be of any assistance to you in the future.
