RTI2 Award


The faculty and staff of DCES believe every child has the potential to succeed.  We strive to nurture the academic, social, emotional, and physical development of all children by challenging their intellectual curiosity and by encouraging positive ways to contribute to school, community, and society.

We further believe education is a journey that must be meaningful, relevant, and 

requires a healthy, safe, and orderly environment.  Educational improvement requires commitment of parents, teachers, and community.  Our school family believes students who take pride in their school will succeed at their own ability levels.  The faculty and staff support an active level of participation in the learning process.  We have effective leaders who continue to enhance diversified teaching techniques.  Students must be able to use a variety of technical tools in order to enhance future success.  We firmly feel that all stakeholders want all DCES students to reach their fullest potential.

Brief History of DCES

David Crockett Elementary School is one of eight elementary schools in the Lawrence County School System.  It is located on the western outskirts of Lawrence County.  It was first established in 1951 and named for the frontiersman, David Crockett.  In 1996, the school moved from the site on West Point Road to its present location.  We now serve students in grades PreK-5th grades.  We presently serve approximately 500 students in two Pre-K classes, and 22 K-5 classes.  We are fortunate to have two computer labs, library, PE, exploratory and guidance classes.  In grades 3-5 students have one-to-one chromebook devices.
