HISTORY

The City of Chickasaw passed a resolution to establish its own school system (May11th

2010). The city then passed a resolution to establish its own school board and the City of

Chickasaw Board of Education was born (Jan 11 th 2011). Robert McFall was voted in as its

1 st president. Mr. McFall and Vice President Barry Broadhead were appointed to lead

negotiations to separate Chickasaw from the Mobile County School system. The team also

included Mr. Paul Sousa, Mr. Charlie Wilcox and Mr. Bob Campbell. As the negotiations

began, it was discovered that the children of Chickasaw were scattered over 62 different

schools in Mobile County. The final agreement was signed April 5 th 2012! The search

began immediately to find a superintendent. On June 25 th 2012 Kyle Kallhoff was hired as

the 1 st Superintendent for the City of Chickasaw School System. Noteworthy was the short

time an entire school system was formed. Chickasaw had three buildings, all elementary

schools, with no middle or high school. Mr Kallhoff was hired on the 25 th of June and the

school year started on August 20 th of that same year. An entire school system K-12 was

formed and up and running in less than a few months. The school started with

approximately 980 students and had 11 Seniors in its first graduating class of 2012!
