Superintendent's Message

Welcome to Benton District 47

My name is Dr. Steve Smith and I began serving as Superintendent of Benton #47 starting in the 2017-18 school year.  I have been an educator for over 20 years.  I have served in various capacities, including; teacher, coach, Assistant Principal, Principal, and Superintendent.  Throughout my years in education, I have strived to provide students a safe, positive, world class learning environment surrounded by an outstanding faculty and staff.  I believe our success, both current and future, reflects the dedicated work by our staff to provide students the opportunity to learn, explore, and build positive relationships.  Our goal is to prepare every student to leave Benton #47 with the social, emotional, and academic skills needed to become world class high school students.   

I hope our website provides the information and resources needed.  If you ever have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to call, email, or stop by the District Office.   

Dr. Stephen C. Smith, Ed.D. 
District #47
