Donna W. Jackson, Ph.D.

Donna Jackson has spent the last seventeen years as an administrator in Clayton County Public Schools. She opened James A. Jackson Elementary school in August, 2003; developed and planned the overall activities for an elementary school with 1000+ students; led the school in making Adequate Yearly Progress under No Child Left Behind every year since the school’s opening. In August, 2009 she started the first elementary School of the Arts in the Southern Crescent of Metro Atlanta featuring Dance, Theater, Visual Art, Music (Choral and Instrumental) and Media Arts for grades K-5. Jackson School of the Arts existed as a school within a school for ten years and will now become Kay Pace School of the Arts.

Dr. Jackson has presented an arts focused curriculum nationally for numerous educational conferences on the positive impact of the arts for increased student achievement. She has reviewed books on creativity for a national publisher and published several articles on the impact of the arts on student achievement.

She believes that through the Arts, students can excel within their creative talents.  The promotion of the Arts for Clayton County Public Schools are set forth in the mission of integrating the Arts to:

  1. Improve student achievement through rigorous academic and arts instructional programs
  2. Increase student achievement in the arts on the secondary level by introducing a rigorous arts-based curriculum through the primary and middle school grades
  3. Attract highly talented students to Clayton County
  4. Provide additional choices for parents and students in Clayton County

The Rationale for Arts integration and the Arts program is to offer students opportunities to focus on excellence in academics while discovering, exploring and refining their talents and interests in the Arts.

The Vision is a learning community where students achieve high academic standards, develop good citizenship qualities and enhance their artistic expression.
