Welcome to the Jefferson City School System’s website. Jefferson has a rich and proud educational tradition reaching back in time to the year 1818. Martin Institute, chartered in 1818, was the first privately endowed public high school in the United States, and a forerunner to the current Jefferson High School. The citizenry of Jefferson, and its Board of Education enthusiastically pursue the mantle of excellence in all programs and scholastic offerings. Consequently, Jefferson ranks among the finest in curriculum, instruction and extracurricular activities. The Jefferson City School System subscribes to the belief that while it is important to be an advocate for quality in public education, it is more important to serve as an example.

State law in Georgia allows intradistrict transfer within the state. The Jefferson City School System has no options for intradistrict transfer because the system is comprised of only one school per grade band (Jefferson Elementary School - Grades PreK-2; Jefferson Academy - Grades 3-5, Jefferson Middle School - Grades 6-8, and Jefferson High School - Grades 9-12). Please contact Dr. Donna R. McMullan, Associate Superintendent, at 706-367-2883 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need additional information. (Posted: June 23, 2014)

Jefferson City Schools Food Service Department is committed to providing each student with a healthy, affordable, and safe meal that is served by caring individuals so students are ready to learn when they get to the classroom. School breakfast and lunch are planned and prepared according to standards that meet the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans in a safe and sanitary environment. The cafeterias serve as learning centers where students can acquire the knowledge to develop lifelong healthy eating habits
USDA’s federal nutrition regulations for school meals ensure that all meals offered are well-balanced and provide students the fuel they need. Recent changes to the meal pattern regulations include an increase in fruits and vegetables (each student must select at least one serving), a greater variety of vegetables to include dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes, an increase in the availability of whole grain products, and a more age-appropriate caloric limit. Please visit each schools website to see the lunch menu.

The finance/human resources department at Jefferson City Schools manages three major funds of the district – the general fund, capital projects and special funds (state and federal grants). The department is responsible for the annual budgets, accounting, auditing, financial reporting to state and federal agencies, cash management including any debt, payroll, benefits, purchasing and accounts payables. Many of these functions are interdependent with schools and departments so teamwork among principals and administrators is paramount.
