Board of Governors

Jackson Preparatory & Early College Board of Governors is a diverse seven member team made up of representatives from the Jackson area.  All appointed members go through an extensive appointment process and must be approved by the Authorizer, Jackson College.

The Board of Governors is the governing body of JPEC and they hold monthly meetings to conduct school business and resolve important matters.  The public is welcome to attend the meetings.

Authorizing Partnership

Jackson College (JC) is the authorizer of JPEC.  Authorization was approved by the JC Board of Trustees on January 22, 2013.  JC will oversee the academic, financial and compliance operations at JPEC, while the JPEC Board of Directors will ensure that the school is, at a minimum, meeting goals in each of these critical areas.  Both entities are committed to the educational goal and long-term vision of preparing students for success in college, work and life.  The National Charter Schools Institute will continue to support both organizations by providing necessary tools, information, and education.

With JPEC ideally located on the Jackson College campus and with seamless academic programming between JPEC and JC courses/academic pathways, the vision and structure all but ensures a strong and supportive relationship between JPEC and its authorizer (JC). To further support and maintain this relationship, processes and procedures will be developed to address everything from early college academic advising for college-ready JPEC students, to JPEC security protocols aligned and in concert with those of JC.
