Welcome to Poplar Public Schools

  • The Mission of Poplar Schools, in cooperation with parents, and community, is to develop exemplary citizens through enthusiastic and knowledgeable guidance and instruction in a culturally enriched environment.

A message from Mr. Baldwin, Superintendent

  • It is truly an honor to start my 2nd year at Poplar and serve the students, families and community of Poplar, as Superintendent of Schools.

    As I start my 41st year in the education field, I have had the opportunity to work as a teacher, coach, A.D., principal and this being my 23rd year as a superintendent, I can say with upmost confidence Poplar Schools has a great deal to be proud of.

    By collaborating with staff, and parents together we have developed an atmosphere conducive towards providing the best education possible. Since my arrival in the fall of 2015 I have observed our school system progressing towards a school all can be proud of.

    My administration team and I have worked very hard to assure all receive an education 2nd to none. We are proud of our school and students who attend our school and the pride our school and community possess on a daily basis.

    Again, I am honored and proud of our schools and look forward to the 16-17 school year. If I can be of assistance, please contact the district office at 768-6602.

    Working for the betterment of all;

    James A. Baldwin

    Superintendent of Schools
