Douglas County Central Office
Douglas County School System:

"After consulting with health agencies and leaders in the Douglas County School System, we will close all schools and school system offices beginning Monday, March 16.

We realize that closing schools will place a hardship on many families, but we feel we must make a decision based on the health and wellbeing of our students, their families, our school system employees and our community. We are hopeful that the closure of schools will contain the spread of coronavirus. Thank you for your understanding."


On April 1, Governor Kemp announced an executive order that schools in Georgia will stay closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. ALL Facility Rentals will be suspended indefinitely due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Any community requests that are “pending” have been suspended until further notice as well.

John W. Stewart Middle School is located in the northeast section of Douglas County within the city limits of Douglasville, Georgia. John W. Stewart Middle School has undergone many changes since opening its doors in 1957. Originally known as R. L. Cousins, it was a first through twelfth grade school serving the African-American community of Douglas County. In 1972, the school became integrated and was renamed Douglas County Junior High School. In 1973, it was given its present name in honor of Mr. John W. Stewart, who was the principal from 1957 until 1977.
