Battle Creek Public Schools Congratulates

Ms. Kimberly Parker-DeVauld, Ed.S.!!!


After serving as Interim Superintendent over the last few months, the Board of Education unanimously voted to remove "interim" from her title and to make Ms. Parker-DeVauld superintendent of Battle Creek Public Schools.  We warmly and gratefully welcome her leadership and look forward to sharing her vision of making Battle Creek Public Schools "the place to be, the place to stay!"

For more information, please see Ms. Parker-DeVauld's message here.
