Chet Deaver - Principal


My name is Dr. Chet Deaver and I am the Principal here at Kountze High School.  I have been a part of the Kountze family for over 25 years, and have been with KISD for 13 years.  I received my B.S. degree in ‘92, my M.Ed. degree in 2010, and my Educational Doctorate in Educational Leadership in 2014 from Lamar University.  My children are all products of Kountze ISD!  My daughter Lauren is a 2013 graduate from TEXAS A&M with a degree in Special Education as is currently teaching and coaching at Warren ISD.  My daughter Caleigh is a 2016 graduate from Texas A&M with a degree in Biomedical Science and is currently seeking her Master’s Degree.  My son, Cade is in his Senior year at Texas A&M majoring in Architecture and Construction Science.

I believe all children have the right to be educated to their maximum potential.  As educators, it is our privilege and our duty to equip students with the tools and skills needed to lead a successful life as productive citizens through continued education or placement in the work force.  I understand all students are unique and dynamic individuals. Our educational programs must incorporate the latest research on teaching methodologies to increase student performance and foster success for all learning styles. As educators, we must be creative risk takers in exploring new and innovative ways to challenge students intellectually, physically, and emotionally.

At KHS we will do our best to make success happen!

My office hours will vary, but I am usually here from 7 AM until 5 PM.  My policy is to be available to you and your concerns at anytime.  However, I do encourage you to make an appointment to guarantee I will be in the office.
