The old South Jackson Elementary School campus will no longer be vacant.
The Jackson County Board of Education signed a lease agreement Monday with The Church at Southside for use of the campus. Members of the church were on-hand at the school board meeting to sign the lease.
The campus, located on Hwy. 129, has gone unused since last year when SJES moved into the former Kings Bridge Middle School campus.
“It allows us to make a difference in the county,” said Southside pastor Jeff Williams of the deal to lease the former school campus. “This allows us to continue to grow.”
