Greetings, and welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year. My name is Tim Allen, Principal of the T.A. Wilson Academy. It is with great pleasure and honor for me to join the wonderful Jackson Public School and community family. Over the past 25 years, I have served in the public school education field in the areas of principal, social worker, and student support specialist.
Better-than-budgeted interest rates and a competitive market paid off for Jackson Public schools in the recent sale of bonds from a proposal voters approved in May. The 2.95-mill proposal passed by 994 votes. Funds will be used for consolidation of buildings, construction of a new school, reopening a vacant building, updating and securing learning spaces, swimming pool replacement, purchase of buses and technology upgrades.
More than one dozen former players serving as coaches stood in a line as current Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh received the microphone from Jackson native Al Glick to kick off the first Al Glick Youth Football Camp.
