The JCISD is an educational service agency that works in partnership with local public and charter schools, and the local community. With a commitment to the success of all students by providing educational leadership, services, programs, and resources, the JCISD has set its sights on the following strategic goals for the 2015 school year and beyond:
- Evolve the County’s School Improvement Consortium
- Build and Strengthen Communication
- Lead the AdvancedEd Accreditation Process
- Support Quality Collaborative Efforts that
Achieve Collective Impact
Three of the most visible programs operated by the JCISD are the Jackson Area Career Center (career and technical education), the Lyle A. Torrant and Kit Young Center Centers (special education), and our Educators' Support initiatives, which includes curriculum, data and assessment support, professional learning, and our regional school improvement facilitators network.
In addition to our educational services, we also offer cost-effective administrative services to our districts, including business services, human resource and staffing support, and our 22-district technology consortium. These high-quality and affordable services have a significant impact on educators and the community, and are important in helping our school districts accomplish their mission within their own communities.
