Message from the Superintendent

Speaking for over 500 employees and 3500 students, I am proud to serve as your community's superintendent of schools. We exist to serve the best interests of our students and our community, and we want to invite you to be a part of us. No school system can be a success without the support and faith of our parents, businesses, churches, community officials, and civic organizations.

District News

Due to the slight reduction in the state austerity funding cut to our school system (from $2.1 million to $1.5 million next year), we will be recommending an amendment to the 2014-2015 school calendar. This draft adds an additional three school days for children next year (from 165 to 168 school days). This calendar will be voted on during the April 22, 2014, regular school board meeting at 7 PM at the Ernest Battle Professional Development Center.

ONLINE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS 

Dear Parents, 

In July 2012, Senate Bill 289 passed allowing students opportunities to take online courses.  This legislation does not require an online course to graduate, but provides an online learning option should your student or you choose this option.  

In the 2013-2014 school year, Butts County Schools will be offering Georgia Virtual School courses online to any student at Jackson High School. A list of courses can be found at http://www.gavirtualschool.org/CourseInfo/Fall2013Courses.aspx. If you are interested in enrolling your child in an online course, please contact the counselor’s office of Jackson High School at 770-504-2300.
