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)

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.

"Mrs. Meyer's leadership skills and strengths extend far beyond what is required solely in the classroom; she is passionate, hard-working, and a visionary. She treats all of her students as if they were her own and maintains high expectations for each of them, regardless of their struggles and/or strengths. The enthusiasm and charisma that Mrs. Meyer encompasses are transparent to those who work closely with her; therefore when students enter her classroom, they absorb her energy, and it is evident in their efforts on a daily basis."
