A message from Mr. Chresal Threadgill, Superintendent:


Welcome to the Elba City Schools System where we work as one team, with one goal.....Excellence!

      We have developed our website to serve as a resource for our students, school staff, parents and the Elba community.  It is our mission to provide a challenging education in a student-centered, safe, nurturing environment.  The needs of students are addressed through rigorous, relevant curriculum and effective instruction that produces graduates who contribute responsibly in a global community.

Elba City Schools is committed to:

  • Continuous school improvement while ensuring physically, emotionally safe and inclusive learning environments.
  • A caring climate of respect and support among all stakeholders.
  • Challenging students of diverse abilities and interests through relevant content, varied teaching strategies and effective, engaging instruction.
  • Preserving and expanding collaborative and cooperative home/ school/community relationships.
  • Recruiting and retaining highly qualified, technically proficient faculty and staff engaged in continuing professional development and data-informed decision-making that promotes student success.


Students: Our mission is to focus on you and your preparation for the next phase of your lives. Every decision we make, every plan we implement, everything must be centered on you and your educational success. I strongly encourage you to reflect on the education that you are receiving and ask the hard questions of yourself and your teachers. Are you “learning up to your potential” so that you can be ready for college and a career upon graduating from the Elba City Schools System? Remember, smarter is what you become through active learning experiences!

 Parents/Family: I encourage you to visit your child (ren) at school to see the dynamic learning experiences in which they are engaged on a daily basis. Just as important, your presence and attention to their academic lives will reinforce to your child your support for his or her academic achievement.

 Staff:  The challenge is very clear for us:  A great teacher in every classroom for every student every day. It is our responsibility to support the instruction of students from whatever position you serve in the district-all roads must lead back to our students.

 Community: As a school system, we are thankful to be in a community dedicated to students and schools. The strength of our collaboration is what makes Elba and the Elba City District a great place to live and to learn.

 Success does not happen by chance. School districts do not perform at high levels by accident-it is the thoughtful, deliberative acts of all facets of the school community that fosters success. 

 It’s great to be an Elba Tiger!!
