Iota Psi Omega Chapter
In February 2023, the Clarke County School District’s Board of Education approved the appointment of Dr. Jennifer Scott as the new Chief of Academics and Student Supports, a role that merges her current position as Chief of Student and Family Supports and that of Chief Academic Officer. March 6 marked her official start date in that role.
Dr. Scott is a 25-year veteran of CCSD, starting in 1998 as a teacher at Timothy Road Elementary. She was later assistant principal at TRES before serving as principal of Barnett Shoals from 2011-2019. She joined the district office in 2019 as an Executive Director of Leadership Development in 2019, a role in which she supervised and promoted the professional growth and development of principals at seven of the district’s 14 elementary schools. She was promoted to Chief of Student and Family Support. Dr. Scott holds a bachelor’s degree in speech communications, a master’s degree in early childhood education, and a doctorate in Educational Leadership, all from the University of Georgia.
Within the chapter, Soror Jennifer Scott has worked tirelessly and selflessly serving in various leadership roles (including being the Chapter President 2009-2010) and working with several committees since her initiation into Iota Psi Omega in Fall 1999. We are so proud of you, Soror Jennifer Scott. May you continue to positively impact the lives of children and families in Clarke County and beyond!
