Board of Education
Jackson County ISD Board of Education
The Jackson County ISD Board of Education is made up of five members of the Jackson County community. Members are elected to six-year terms by each of the twelve local, public school boards JCISD serves. These individuals are dedicated to education, and committed to making sure each child has the opportunity for success through the board’s planning, policies, oversight and guidance. The board is also responsible for hiring a superintendent, who works closely with administrative staff in setting district goals that measure areas including, but not limited to: student achievement, process development, and service effectiveness.
Elections are held every other year and under strict guidelines outlined in the state law. The JCISD Board meets each month on the third Tuesday of the month at 5pm; unless otherwise posted. The public is invited and welcome to attend these meetings. Individuals and/or groups may address the Board during the meetings. For further information, contact the superintendent's office at 517-768-5200. Meetings are held at the Kratz Education Center (KEC) at 6700 Browns Lake Road. Members of the public who wish to contact Board members outside of Board meetings are encouraged to write them using the Board members' district email addresses, which are listed below.
It is our policy to provide reasonable access to the board of education. Virtual participants and persons with an inability to attend an in-person meeting can submit a written comment ahead of time.
