A strategic goal of Jackson County School System is to personalize the learning experience for each of our students in every capacity. 


Personalized learning works closely with two other groups in our system.

With technology fully integrated into Teaching & Learning, our powerhouse Technology Department team implements and maintains all devices, hardware, infrastructure, and network services with our primary customer in mind: our students. Information technology infused with a continual instructional perspective helps us not only better serve our students and teachers but also stay at the forefront of educational technology in schools, thus better preparing our students for a dynamically changing future.

We know that strong and successful lifelong learners come from expert teachers in all our instructional spaces. Our Content Instructional Specialist Team works with every teacher and every administrator to provide the most effective curriculum materials and instruction models to maximize the learning of each student in our care.
