IM4U PROGRAM COMING TO JES!
The IM4U Program sponsored by Jimmy Buffet and grant money given by the Butts County Sheriff's Department will be at JES on March 18, 2014 for an assembly for grades 3-5 at 1:45 pm in the Panda Café. This program discusses how children can open up and talk about "tough stuff." IM4U is a "play based" teaching program that uses music and games to create a safe environment for children. The program objective is to create a sense of empathy towards one another so children behave responsibly, not because they are afraid of getting in trouble or worried that someone is looking, but because it feels good. Jim Mayer, former band member with Jimmy Buffet, and founder of IM4U will be here with his band. If you would like more information about the program, please visit their website at IM4U.org. JES has extended an invitation to Senator Jones and our local newspaper to attend this exciting event.

SACS/AdvancED External Review Visit
AdvancED/SACS CASI District Accreditation
Welcome to Butts County Schools AdvancED/SACS CASI general information site! This site provides information regarding the district accreditation protocol offered by AdvancED. Currently, the Butts County School District and each of its schools are fully accredited. This means that annually, every public school in Butts County meets or exceeds the accreditation standards that support student achievement. In October 2008, Butts County Schools was one of the school districts to undergo an AdvancED District Accreditation. On February 23-26, 2014, the school district will again host an AdvancED External Review Team to certify its district accreditation for another five years.
