A Message from Our Superintendent

Welcome to the Jennings County School Corporation! You have found your new home. In our school district, you will find educators and staff who work hard every day to provide our children with an exceptional education. To prepare for the 2021–2022 school year, we have hired 40 paraprofessionals, who are going to assist us with providing our students with small groups and extra help. We have also expanded our project-based learning and STEM activities to ensure our students are being provided opportunities to solve real problems, work collaboratively, and think critically. To address the ongoing Pandemic, our staff has worked together to create our return to school: Panthers prepare and care plan to respond to how our district will address health, safety, curriculum and instruction, and social-emotional learning. Keeping our students in school, safely, is our number one priority. 

We will also continue to concentrate on our three goals outlined in our strategic plan:

  • Keeping kids in school
  • Improving academic achievement and growth
  • Educating the whole child 

Our staff has a commitment to provide innovative programming opportunities to meet the needs of all students. While our programming is evolving and expanding, it really isn’t the only reason for our success. Our district is becoming the school district of choice for one reason. It is our people. Whether you are working with our cafeteria, custodial, teaching, maintenance, administration, bus drivers, secretaries, paraprofessionals, nursing, or technology staff, you will find outstanding people who care about your children. We work together to provide our students with the support and encouragement they need to achieve their potential. For us, relationships are key, and we strive to create partnerships with our students and families that last a lifetime. The Jennings County Panthers are a family, and we take care of one another. 

We know COVID-19 has caused anxiety and brought challenges to many in our community. We are doing our part to communicate and work with families to continue to provide our students with high-quality academic instruction. Maintaining connections with our students and families is more important than ever. We will continue to search for opportunities to serve our families. As our world changes, we will continue to remain flexible and find innovative solutions to meet the needs of our students. 

We invite you to join us on our mission of creating a world-class education for our students. By working together as a community, we know anything is possible. We are stronger together! We are growing together! We are JC!

Please let me know how I can serve you,

Teresa Brown
