THE JEFFERSON School System central office staff — or at least most of it — may soon come together under one roof.
The city school board has made a $600,000 purchase offer for a building north of downtown that it wishes to make its new central office. Members of the Jefferson Board of Education (BOE) voted unanimously Thursday to make the offer at the recommendation of superintendent John Jackson.
If purchased, the school system would consolidate its central office staff at property is located north of all of the school campuses at 345 Storey Lane, 1.7 miles from Jefferson High School.
Jackson’s superintendent’s office is housed at Jefferson High School, while other central office staff work out of the Martin Institute on Martin Street, just half a mile from the high school.
Woods Brothers and Scott Inc., Surveying and Engineering currently occupies the five-year-old, 9,100 square foot building.

another waste of money. staff should be at the school complex not miles away. paid outrageous amount for old Martin Institute building (just a few years ago) and will now abandon it !!!. seems like they are willing to spend money on themselves rather than the student needs.
