Superintendent's Message

Dr. Adrian Hammitte, Superintendent of Education

Dear Parents, Students, and Stakeholders:

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am delighted to welcome you to our district where each day we work together to fulfill our commitment to educating boys and girls. Thank you for visiting our district website. The website contains many valuable resources for parents, students, staff and the community.

We are extremely excited about the many great things happening in the district. I could not be prouder of the collaborative work being done to improve student achievement. As we strive for academic excellence, we are shifting our focus from a teacher-centered approach to a student-centered paradigm. We are implementing high-impact strategies and rigorous instructional approaches to meet the learning styles of students. We are also actively engaging parents and community stakeholders in the learning process.  

As Superintendent, my highest priority is to make sure that every child receives a high-quality education. We are putting systems in place to ensure student achievement improves at each school. In addition, we are promoting teaching and learning by fostering a positive school climate. 

I encourage you to review the Jefferson County School District vision statement and mission statement to get a greater sense of what our district is all about, and what we hope to achieve in the future. Let’s continue to dream big, work hard, and rise together! 

With warm regards, 

Adrian Hammitte, Ph.D. 
Superintendent of Education
