Superintendent's Message

A message from our Superintendent...

Karie McCrate Superintendent

Welcome to the Dover City Schools Website.

 Dover City Schools is defined by a strong connection with and support   from the Dover community.  It truly is  what sets us apart. Our dedicated   and talented staff take great pride in the excellent education and environment they create for our students every day, something we fondly refer to as The Dover Difference!

We are excited for the coming year and a continued return to normalcy for our students and families. In my 23rd year as part of the Dover staff family, I am both humbled and honored to take on the role of your school superintendent. I am committed to maximizing the potential of our students while staying true to the roots of our Dover traditions.

Academic achievement is valued in every Dover school. We pledge to meet students where they are and provide the needed support and services for each child to thrive. The fine arts in our community continue to evolve and grow. Both visual arts and music are valued and fostered in our school and community. We offer a variety of extracurricular activities, which round out our students’ Dover experience.  Our students plan, practice, and compete at all levels and our student-athletes embrace challenges and high levels of competition.  We also offer a wide variety of other options to reach a wide variety of extracurricular and academic interests. We look forward to a year that is once again filled with art displays and musical and artistic performances for a proud community.

Over the past year, our mission, “Dover Schools: Addressing Tomorrow’s Challenges Today,” has been more relevant than ever. Our commitment to educating all students to their fullest potential has remained steadfast. Ultimately, we pledge to educate our students to their fullest potential.  Through collaboration with parents, teachers, and our community, we strive to help every student build the character and skill sets to become productive and responsible citizens.
I am proud to call myself a Dover Tornado. With a collective pride in the traditions we are built upon and the future we together envision, I thank each of you for supporting  Dover City Schools.

Together, let’s make it a great year.
