March ELAC Meeting
Thursday, March 3, 2022
Meeting ID: 912 8399 8662
Introducing Principal Jarod Scott!
Welcome to the 2020-21 school year.
I am honored and excited to serve as Principal of Kennedy High School. It is with great pride and humility that I accept this tremendous opportunity and important responsibility. Through servant-leadership and with a spirit of collaboration, transparent communication, and trust, I begin this journey with Kennedy and the greater Richmond community. It is one of my highest priorities to engage, encourage and empower our scholars in preparing them for success in college and careers. We build on the school's rich history and proud tradition and Kennedy will become the first choice school for district students.
I bring 20 years of experience and passion in teaching and learning and leading school transformation and turnaround in diverse urban schools. I graduated from Clark Atlanta University and Georgia State University, in Atlanta, GA and completed the National Institute for Urban School Leaders Program at Harvard. I remain committed to social justice, educational excellence, equity, and engagement. Most recently, I served as a Principal in Oakland, where we celebrated increased college and career readiness levels and improved graduation rates.
My vision for Kennedy is to become a world-class high school centered on learning, leadership, and innovation that prepares all scholars for college, career and community success. As a community, we commit to the following:
- We will celebrate diversity and cultivate the social and emotional needs of all students in a caring and safe environment.
- We will focus on rigorous academics, relevant and meaningful learning experiences, and caring relationships.
- We will work in partnership with students, staff, families and community stakeholders to engage, inspire, and empower all scholars.
Finally, family and work-life balance are important to me. I have a beautiful family that is extremely supportive of my work; my wife Julie of 17 years and my son Anderson. You will see them around campus supporting our programs and, on the sidelines, cheering us on during athletic events. I look forward to your input, collaboration, and partnership.
Jarod M. Scott, Principal
Kennedy High School

This morning, students and staff at one of our schools, Grant Elementary in Richmond, had to briefly shelter-in-place because gunshots were fired in the area. Everyone is safe: no students, staff or families were harmed and the school was not targeted. We have been in contact with the Richmond Police Department about the incident.
