What’s Happening at QSD..

Congratulations to Quitman School District…

Quitman School District is proud to announce we have partnered with Cloudflare as a part of the Project Cybersafe Schools. Project Cybersafe Schools is an initiative to strengthen America’s K-12 school’s cybersecurity amidst growing ransomware attacks. This new program will provide a suite of Zero Trust cybersecurity solutions to give small school districts faster, safer Internet browsing and email security – at no cost, and with no time limit. Through this effort, QSD now has the technology to keep our school’s infrastructure safe from harmful threats and it allows us to continue to modernize and strengthen our security measures and protect our staff and students from a wide variety of threats.

After partnering with Project Cybersafe Schools, Quitman School District found the Cloudflare software to be very effective in identifying malicious threats to our technology infrastructure. Cybersafe Schools was announced in August at the White House and they have a keen interest in the success of the program as well as continuing to promote it with eligible school districts. As the White House is continuing to push school cybersecurity, they recognized our positive results and requested an interview with Quitman School District about our experience with Cybersafe Schools. Through this process, QSD was contacted by the head of US Public Policy at Cloudflare about interviewing us to report our story and success with cyber security. Quitman School District was ultimately mentioned in a blog written by the head of US Public Safety at Cloudflare about cybersafe schools.

Quitman School District is honored to be a part of this initiative and is proud to be recognized as a successful cybersafe school.

Job Opportunities

All teachers and administrators, grades PreK-12, at Quitman School District had the opportunity to attend professional development from an wonderful former educator and worldwide presenter, Larry Bell. Mr. Bell motivated these educators to get the semester started in a positive and focused manner to ensure success for all of the students who attend QSD. Our faculty are blessed to have had this opportunity to learn from such a successful and motivating educator.
