Choctaw County High School's J.A.G. (Jobs for America's Graduates) students Amisha Law, Rayanna Bush, and Makayla Haynes represented their school, region, and the state of Alabama at the National J.A.G. competition in Orlando, Florida, from April 19-21, 2023, where they placed 5th overall in the United States for Business Planning.  This is the school's first year having the program as well as competing at any level. This demonstrates the drive, intelligence, and academic competitive spirit of Choctaw's students.  We would like to again congratulate these students and say, Way to go, Tigers!

National Mental Health Awareness Month in May focuses on bringing tools, resources, and education to the general public

Each year Mental Health America, National Alliance on Mental Illness, and other mental health organizations across the country organize events, webinars, and more to improve mental health access across the country.

Choctaw County Schools currently employs a mental health/behavioral specialist in each of its schools in order to promote the overall mental, emotional, behavioral, and physical well-being of its students.  This includes teaching classes on a variety of topics, including coping skills, behavior management, and suicide prevention.  Join us in supporting the mental health of our students, staff, faculty, and communities not just this month but all year.
