Dear Page Jackson ES Parents,
I hope this message finds you well. Many of you may have questions about the principal position at Page Jackson Elementary School. I am writing to update you as I find that an absence of information can lead to unproductive speculation. First, as of Tuesday, October 11, 2016 the position of principal for Page Jackson Elementary School came open. Mr. Paul Brown, an outstanding licensed retired administrator with many years of experience is currently serving as the interim principal while we conduct a search for a new principal. He is being assisted by Ms. Amy Schmitt, the non-teaching head teacher. These individuals are here to serve your families and welcome any questions/concerns you may have. Please know that we will always ensure that your children are served by caring, licensed administrators.
Second, we are following the same process for Page Jackson Elementary School that we have followed for every principal hiring in this administration. A committee which includes a teacher, parent and service representative from PJES will interview candidates who have met the criteria set forth by the WV Code. The candidates must complete a written data exam in advance and then complete an interview. In order to be selected, the committee must unanimously choose the candidate. We will be conducting the search and selection process over the next several weeks and will update you when a candidate has been selected.
Finally, I recognize that our preference would be to have a principal in place as quickly as possible. However, our number one priority is to select the best qualified leader for PJES. Lowering our expectations serves neither our staff nor our children well. I deeply appreciate your patience and consideration while we continue to hold those high expectations. We will always maintain an administratively certified substitute with direct responsibility for the building and its operation during our search. Should you have individual questions or concerns for your children or the leadership of PJES I invite you to contact me directly. Thank you for your trust in us to serve your family and continued support of Jefferson County Schools.
