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 Middle School!

Dear Jefferson Middle School Parents and Students,

My name is Carol Ann Knight, and I am both honored and excited to be your Principal. Jefferson Middle School has a rich tradition of excellence in academics, fine arts, and athletics. We will continue to provide highly qualified educators that are committed to providing a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms. 

Middle School is a time of transition that comes with new experiences and new responsibilities. As students become independent and increasingly involved in activities, your ongoing involvement becomes a critical component in their success. JMS invites students and parents to partner with us to meet the individual needs of each and every student as we strive to help them develop their strengths and reach their full potential. 

I am excited about the upcoming school year and consider myself fortunate and thankful to have the opportunity to work with amazing students and parents, an outstanding faculty and staff, and a community that truly supports our school system. If you ever have a question or concern, please feel free to contact me at any time.
