Good evening. This past Thursday, the Jackson County Board of Education passed the creation of an Electrician Technician program for students at Ravenswood High and Ripley High that will be housed at the former Ravenswood Middle School. I encourage all Sophomores and Juniors interested in the newly created program to meet with their high school counselors as soon as possible to learn about the class requirements for the program. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students as we try to meet the needs of our community as new businesses enter our area. If you have any questions regarding this program, I encourage you to contact your son’s or daughter’s high school for more information. Thank you and have a wonderful evening.

Good evening, Jackson County Schools is committed to the safety and education of all our students. Essential to this commitment is open communication with our families and school community about any immediate issues when they arise. For this reason, Jackson County Schools is communicating with Ripley Middle School families late this evening regarding an isolated threat reported on the social media platform - snap chat. All threats to schools or students are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. After receiving the snap chat posts around 3:00 p.m. today, Jackson County Schools began working closely with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department regarding the reported threat and its validity. Late this evening, law enforcement concluded their initial investigation and is taking necessary actions against the threats and the person involved. I want to thank the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department for its quick work and assistance keeping our schools safe and secure.
