The Operations Department supports the educational programs provided by the Jackson County School System to help serve the needs of our community. We strive to provide a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff. We have a model of continuous planning that includes forward thoughts about what is best for our students as we progress into the future and explore all options. Safety, Service, Professionalism, and a mindset for Excellence will serve as our core values.
The Jackson County School System is made up of 10,000 students, 1,500 employees and 12 educational facilities – all included in the Operations Department. While the Superintendent is tasked with running the school system, the Operations Department's responsibility is to make sure the school system functions on a day-to-day basis. Our number one goal is student achievement, and to provide an optimal classroom setting to give student a better opportunity to learn.
