Dear Students and Parents,
As the Superintendent of Jackson County, it is with sincere optimism and enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. This is always an exciting time of the year with many students starting school for the first time ever while others are finalizing preparations for college and/or a career. Please know that I am honored and privileged to be serving as the Interim Superintendent of the Jackson County School System and have thoroughly enjoyed my time since my arrival last September.
As always, we encourage every parent and guardian to become a part of their child’s education from elementary, middle, to high school by developing collaborative relationships with our teachers, administrators, and other staff. A partnership in your child’s education is extremely rewarding. It promises the reward of academic excellence and school success.
To aid in the continued success of our students, the Jackson County School System Handbook was developed. The student handbook will be our students’ guide throughout the 2016-2017 school year. It provides valuable information regarding school attendance, dress code, lunch, discipline, and other policies and procedures. The detailed information within the handbook ensures the establishment of a positive learning environment designed to meet the needs of every student. The main thing to remember is that we want each and every student in the school system to be given the best possible chance to be successful during this school year.
If there is anything I can do to help in your child’s education, please do not hesitate to call.
Bart Reeves Interim Superintendent
