The Jackson County School Board met Tuesday afternoon in a combined board meeting and workshop due to summer scheduling of training for staff.  One of the items scheduled for a vote under personnel was the move of Ron Mitchell from assistant principal at Jackson Alternative School to Marianna High School as assistant principal.   The Board voted 4-0 with Tony Pumphrey not present to vote.  

Mitchell brings a wealth of experience to the job.  He is a 1980 graduate of Marianna High School, received his AA degree from Chipola, his B.S. degree from Troy State University, M.Ed from the University of West Florida, and Ed.S from the University of West Florida.  

Mitchell’s work history is quite extensive also.  He was a teacher/transition specialist at Dozier School and JJOCC from 1999-2005 and a Diagnostic Specialist for Washington County Schools at Dozier and JJOCC from 2005-2007.  He was a Principal Designee for Washington County Schools at Dozier and JJOCC from 2007 to 2011 before moving to Marianna High School as a TSA (Teacher on Special Assignment) in administration from 2011-2012.  From 2012 to 2015 he was assistant principal at MHS before transferring to Jackson Alternative School as assistant principal.  

Mitchell holds certification in psychology grades 6-12, Exceptional Student Education (ESE), Educational Leadership (all levels) and School Principal (all levels).

Superintendent of Schools Larry Moore said of Mitchell’s appointment, “I am excited that he is moving over to Marianna High School.  He will be an asset to the students and the faculty there.  He has a sincere desire to make Jackson County School system and Marianna High School the best he can be.  He’s an outstanding individual, wonderful person, and a really good school leader.  I look forward to having him in that capacity.”

Mitchell will join Sybil Rivers as assistant principal, John Donaldson as TSA, and Hunter Nolen as Principal for the 2017-18 school year.
