Student Leadership Group Visits Capital
Monday, March 3rd, 53 Jackson Student Leadership members, from East and Jackson County Comprehensive High School, visited the State Capital to finalize their fourth Leadership Modules for the year, "Leadership Change" and "Leadership Culture". Working closely with Representative Tommy Benton, our students had a guided, informative tour of the Capital and discussed the Leadership Culture and Change that has occurred in the State of Georgia over the many years. In addition, students had the opportunity to view the voting and deliberations occurring on the 30th day of the Legislative Session. One of the most active legislative days of the entire session. Special thanks to our Representatives: Mr. Tommy Benton, Ms. Regina Quick, Senators: Mr. Frank Ginn and Mr. John Wilkinson, and GA Agriculture Commissioner Mr. Gary Black and his staff for helping our students have a wonderful learning experience.
Weather Make Up Plan
The Georgia State Board of Education granted a waiver for local school systems to forgive days missed due to recent inclement weather. Jackson County Schools will continue with regularly scheduled school days as reflected on the calendar approved by the BOE on Monday, February 10th. As previously communicated, students will attend school on March 14th and May 22nd. However, Jackson County Schools will not add May 23rd, nor will any potential change to start and end times be implemented. We are committed to providing focused instruction to ensure student preparedness for upcoming assessments and advancement in their educational careers. Thank you for your patience as we are committed to our students, families, and their success!
