Jefferson City Schools is proud to announce the achievement and status of the
Georgia School Boards Association’s (GSBA) 2022 Exemplary School
Board Recognition. This is the sixth consecutive year JCS has achieved
exemplary status.

JCS BOE Chairman Ronnie Hopkins, along with Superintendent Dr. Donna
McMullan and other board members, accepted the award at the 2022 Georgia
School Boards Association conference held in Atlanta last week.
The recognition program is designed to showcase best practices in school
governance and leadership. GSBA recognizes good school board governance to
foster educational community cultures in order to advance student learning
and achievement. The GSBA Board recognition program is a three-tiered
program with “exemplary” being the highest level.

The JCS BOE also was recognized with the 2022 Leading Edge Award at the
conference. This unique achievement recognizes the innovative design and
implementation of projects and programs throughout JCS that are having a
significant and positive impact on students.

“We are fortunate to have such a rich tradition of cooperation, service and
educational distinction throughout our system,” says McMullan. “Our Board of
Education is truly honored to be recognized for these awards. These
achievements are made possible by their dedication, exemplary service and high
standards for our students, staff and parents. We look forward to continuing the
legacy of educational excellence!”

JCS previously was awarded and still holds the title of Governance Team of
the Year.

Welcome to Jefferson Elementary School!

Dear Friends,

It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year at Jefferson Elementary School. Our staff is privileged to teach, protect, and care for your precious children. We promise to do our very best to provide each student with a safe and nurturing environment in which they can thrive and reach their highest potential. It is our vision, along with Jefferson City Schools, to provide high-quality education that offers every individual opportunities for success through sound curriculum and research-based practices.

We welcome parent support. When teachers and families partner together to support student achievement, children attend school more regularly, experience academic progress, and are more motivated students. We believe that this collaboration, along with a warm and joyful school environment, will foster a love for learning.

Your child’s education is of the utmost importance to us. I am so humbled and honored to work alongside such a talented and qualified staff, and look forward to an amazing school year. Thank you for trusting us with your child.

Truly yours,

Chrissy Joiner
