A Message from Mr. Baird

To our parents and students:

Thank you for visiting the DeSoto County Alternative Center website. 

DCAC's purpose is to provide educational services for students who have received long term suspensions from their home schools. We work daily to provide a safe and orderly environment that focuses on academics and behavioral skills that students need to be successful in their home schools and later in the workplace. 

 Parents are welcome to visit the DCAC campus at any time, and any suggestions or comments you wish to make are always appreciated.

Sincerely,

Jay Baird, Principal
