DeKalb Central is comprised of: Country Meadow Elementary, James R. Watson Elementary, McKenney-Harrison Elementary, Waterloo Elementary, DeKalb Middle, and DeKalb High schools along with New Tech.

DeKalb Central schools have undergone a recent change in branding. A new logo was created for the district and a fresher branding was implemented at the district’s elementary schools. The elementary approach has been enhanced to better educate students who come from a variety of backgrounds and to foster unique learning styles which better suits its students.

Country Meadow Elementary will begin its second year as a “Leader in Me” school. The leadership program has been integrated into the cirriculum with a focus on the arts. The program is in partnership with FranklinCovey Education and approximately 1,500 schools worldwide are apart of the program.

Also new for 2014-2015 is new resources on social media and the internet.
