One of the first questions we hear from folks moving into Jacksonville is “Where can we get good information about Jacksonville schools?”
In the past, we have directed them to several different websites to get the information they need because no one site seemed to have all the data needed. Well, no there appears to be one and it looks fantastic to us!
The Jacksonville Public Education Fund is “an independent nonprofit organization that works to connect research with civic voice to bring about unified action in support of universally high-quality public schools for all children in Duval County.”
Their website, www.jaxpef.org, provides a wealth of information about the Duval County School System and each individual school within the system. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg that is this powerful site. There is so much more and we really encourage everyone to dig in, get involved and share with everyone you know.
If you are new to the area, a parent interested in learning more about Jacksonville Public Schools or just a caring and concerned citizen of our great city, the Jacksonville Public Education Fund website is the place we recommend you go to get the information you want and need and to find ways to become more active in making Jacksonville Public Schools the best schools in America.
