Academy Engagement

  • Jackson Public School District is on the move to great things. To become a part of this movement, the process is simple. There are several opportunities for engagement that have been identified and you may choose to participate in any of these. In addition, if you have a service you wish to provide we can help you as well.  Nikki McCelleis, Director of Educational Initiatives for Alignment Jackson/United Way of the Capital Area as well as Marquita Slater, Director of Academies for JPS will assist in the process of developing your engagement plan.

    To date, many partners have established a relationship with one or several of the Academies of Jackson. As an integral part of this relationship, each partner has committed to the support of their chosen academy through professional development, sharing of material and financial resources, and/or promoting educational interactions that increase student engagement.
