Dozier Elementary School Structures

Dozier Elementary began with Vermilion Parish Schools in 1941. A wooden school house was built. In 1954, a brick structure was built to accommodate a growing student body. There are no known photos of Dozier Elementary's African American schools. (Neither the wooden structure, nor the brick one.) However, in these two photos donated by Sister Mary John Seyler who was a nun at our Lady of Lourdes Catholic church in 1960's. She taught religion classes on the Dozier campus at this time. If you look behind the students in the corner, you can see part of the original brick structure/school at that time.

Following integration in 1968, Dozier Elementary was closed. Due to lack of space at Erath High, the school was remodeled and renovated and reopened in 1972 for all Erath, students in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade.

The Kindergarten section (or hall) was added and opened in 1974.
